DZHK Professorships

With the establishment of DZHK Professorships, the DZHK creates an opportunity to recruit excellent researchers for the long term and at the same time, to build a generation of future leaders. DZHK Professors are appointed by their respective institutions and are financed from DZHK partner site funds. The professors significantly contribute to the scientific profiling of their partner site. Currently, the DZHK has appointed 16 DZHK Professors that form – together with the heads of the Junior Research Groups – their own committee. The group has voting rights in the strategic decision-making body of the DZHK, the RCC. They are also the program committee for the annual DZHK Retreat.
