Heinrich Heine University (HHU) would like to offer excellent young scientists a predictable career perspective and in this way contribute to the further qualification of highly qualified junior researchers and their long-term association with HHU.


Academic work at HHU

Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) sees itself as a research-oriented university with visible research activities on a national and international level. We would be pleased if you would locate your junior research group at the HHU. Below you will find an overview of the research areas and topics of HHU and its five faculties.

The habilitation is a university examination certifying the ability to conduct independent research and teaching. All information on the habilitation at one of the faculties of HHU is summarised below.

Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) would like to offer excellent young scientists predictable career prospects. In order to achieve this goal, young scientists who are initially employed as university professors on a temporary basis are given the opportunity to be taken on in a permanent position after successful evaluation (tenure procedure). The regulations ensure that junior professors with and without tenure track have a transparent, cross-faculty evaluation procedure.

At Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), numerous young scientists* succeeded in highly competitive research funding competitions in order to fund their own junior research groups. This gives them early scientific independence and makes a significant contribution to sharpening HHU's research profile. The scientific profiles of externally funded HHU junior research group leaders are presented below.
