Assessment criteria

When selecting among qualified applicants, weight will be attached to scientific and educational skills as much as possible.


In assessing scientific proficiency, scientific quality is primarily taken into account. The scope of research, especially in terms of depth and breadth, should be given particular importance. Experience in research initiation and project collaboration is more credible. Assignment of external funds, scientific management assignments and anchoring within the international research community is also important.


In assessing the pedagogical literacy, pedagogical quality is primarily taken into account. Even scope, both width and depth, should be taken into account. Furthermore, the ability to plan, initiate, lead and develop education and teaching, as well as the ability to research the teaching will be important.


Great emphasis will be placed on experience primarily in the field of literature and, secondly, cultural-oriented subjects in the subject of Spanish. The pedagogical skills must be well documented so that both scope and quality can be assessed.


Experience of cooperation with the surrounding community will be given importance. Convicted good cooperation is meritorious.


The university will receive this recruitment primarily to take into account who, after a qualitative overall assessment of competency and proficiency, has the best prerequisites to conduct and develop current work tasks as an actively present employee at the institution and contribute to a positive development of the business.
