Digitalization: Start Your Academic Career in Berlin

Berlin is seeking the top minds in the field of digitalization and over
the next few months is putting out the call for 50 new professorships.
This marks the launch of a 38 million euro project for the German
capital, the goal of which is to connect several institutions including
Technische Universität Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin,
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Universität der Künste Berlin and
Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin with eight renowned research
institutes and two universities of applied sciences into the Einstein
Center Digital Future. The first step – an international recruitment
campaign for 18 professorships – is now underway. Additional
professorships for Berlin will be advertised in the coming months.

The professorships are being funded in part through private financing
from donations to the Einstein Foundation and the State of Berlin as
well as joint appointments with long-standing research partners. Please
note that the positions are conditional upon financing from the donors
and partners. It is intended to extend a number of the temporary
professorships past the end of the funding period.
