The appointment negotiations cover the topics of staffing and resources, professional and personal issues, as well as the salary attached to the professorship to be filled.
Usually the candidate, the Rector, the Director of Finance and Administration, the Dean of the faculty, the faculty’s head of administration, an assistant of the director of Finance and Administration and Dept. 3 (Finance) participate in the negotiations surrounding staffing and resources. Salary negotiations are conducted in a smaller circle.
If desired, Dual Career questions may be addressed during negotiations. You can find a detailed list of items to be addressed in the Guidelines for Appointment Negotiations.
The results are documented and once the negotiations are completed the minutes of the meeting(s) are sent to the candidate and the Dean of the faculty. The candidate will be informed about the result of salary negotiations in a separate confidential letter.
