Habilitation at the faculty

The habilitation serves to formally establish the scientific and pedagogical aptitude to become a professor in a scientific field represented by a professorship at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Würzburg (teaching qualification).

In the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, habilitation is possible in the following fields of study, as well as in sub-fields thereof:

      a) experimental physics

      b) theoretical physics

      c) astronomy

      d) nanostructure technology

      e) Didactics of physics

The aim of the habilitation procedure is to give particularly qualified young academics the opportunity to perform tasks in research and teaching independently and to qualify for appointment to a professorship, if possible within four years, under the scientific supervision of a subject mentor.

Based on the determination of the teaching qualification, the University of Würzburg grants, upon application of the habilitated person, the authorization to teach in the subject area to which the teaching qualification relates.
