Who can apply?
This program is open to highly qualified scholars in all disciplines who hold a doctorate or other terminal degree, and have an affiliation with a higher education institution. Exceptionally talented experts in their field who are not full-time educators will also be considered.
As the applicant, the German host institution receives the DAAD funding.
Visiting Professors are paid by the host institution according to standard salary rates for civil servants and university faculty in Germany.
Travel subsidies depend on which region you travel from to Germany, and additional allowances for luggage and health insurance can be made.
Funding is available for periods of three months to two years.
Candidates must secure an invitation from a German host institution prior to the application for funding, and teach courses integrated into the regular curriculum.
A full description of this program and application guidelines are available on the daad.de website: Gastdozenten an deutschen Hochschulen (in German).
As mentioned above, since the German host institution files the application (with the candidate supplying CV and input on the courses to be taught), most of the information is in German.
Please review the above guidelines for application modalities.
If you have further questions, please contact Sameera Grötsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
