Working at TUM

The university's modern faculty recruitment and career system gives outstanding early-career researchers the chance of promotion from Assistant Professor via Associate to Full Professor. The Technical University of Munich (TUM), moreover, seeks top academics with international experience for professorships.

 

TUM Equal Opportunity

When it comes to arguments for enforcing policies on equality, the following are important in the higher education sector:

  • Academic arguments: promotion of scientific quality through equal participation; efficient talent management
  • Legal arguments: legal standardization in laws and equality plans
  • Political arguments: equal participation is political and moral standard; science-political objective
  • Economic arguments: optimal extraction, promotion and development of all human resource potentials; criterion for obtaining funding
    (Source: „Genderkompetenz für Hochschulräte“)

But we are particularly driven by the ethical dimension of the topic equal opportunity that is based on human dignity and mutual respect. Only by this dimension we are called upon to take responsibility, to embrace change and by that contribute to an open culture.

At the Technical University of Munich (TUM) this topic is seen as a cross-sectional task. The Gender & Diversity Strategy at TUM is strongly supported by the four divisions of TUM Equal Opportunity: TUM FamilyEqual Opportunity, the Gender Equality Office and the Ombud Office.
