The Unite! visiting professorship program aims to attract outstanding international talents to promote interdisciplinarity in teaching and didactic innovation through international experience. It is open to all subjects represented at TU Darmstadt. 

This new format of strategic cooperation between Unite! partner universities promotes networking among its academic communities and supports the career development of the visiting scientists. Moreover, students benefit from internationally oriented teaching. The target group is primarily experienced postdocs affiliated to Unite! partner universities, although advanced career phase (lecturers, professors) are also welcome to apply.  

Visiting professors from the Unite! partner universities offer supplementary (elective) courses at TU Darmstadt, ideally bringing innovative topics. Starting in the winter semester 2024/25, the appointment period should cover the lecture period from mid-October to mid-February and can be established for a maximum of two years.
