The appointments management liaises closely with internal and external insstitutions. It constantly adapts and develops its services to newly appointed professors’ requirements.

  • Dual Career Service

    The Dual Career Service offers advice and support to the accompanying partners of newly appointed professors in their professional reorientation in Hanover and the surrounding region and promotes the chances of attracting newly appointed professors.Together with the Family Service and the Welcome Service, the Dual Career Service form LUH's pre-onboarding offers and represent a culture of appreciation and welcoming.

  • Guide to Appointment Negotiations

    To prepare for contract negotiations, appointees are given information on the contract negotiations schedule, the documents to be submitted and the appropriate contact at LUH.

  • DHV seal of quality

    The seal of quality is a certificate issued by the German Association of University Professors and Lecturers to ensure fair and transparent contract negotiations. The certificate confirms the quality of procedural and negotiation practice at LUH and indicates the regard in which appointees are held. It is issued for a limited period and requires regular review and development of onboarding processes at LUH.

  • Central contact person for newly appointed professors

    In order to welcome newly appointed professors, the university provides a structured programme to help them settle in. During their first 100 days at Leibniz University in particular, newly appointed professors have a central contact person from the university administration to answer any questions they may have.

  • Information, support and training programmes

    The university offers events to welcome, provide information to and upskill new professors, such as welcome days, fireside chats, support, coaching, professional and cross-disciplinary training programmes.

    For tenure-track professorships, a mentoring program, the Tenure Day and at least one tenure interview after the first year in employment with the Vice President for Human Resources Development are also offered in preparation for the tenure evaluation.
