Visiting professors and lecturers
The University can, for a limited period of time only, arrange a freelance contract (cf. section 100 Berlin State Higher Education Act) for professional duties to be undertaken by professors, provided that the person to be engaged fulfils the requirements of a university professorship.
Visiting professors are entitled to use the academic title “professor” for the period covered by their employment at TU Berlin.
For professional duties which do not require professorship services, the University can, for a limited period of time only, arrange a freelance contract for visiting lecturers.
The delegation of professorial duties occurs on the basis of an administrative act at Technische Universität Berlin.
Visiting professorships are not bound by the obligation to advertise a position.
