Guest Professorship Program

The Guest Professorship Program aims to enhance international exchange and scientific collaboration at HITS in the field of natural sciences, mathematics and computer science.

To this end, we invite internationally renowned scientists for sabbaticals or extended research stays. Invited guest professors will collaborate with scientists at HITS and potentially develop joint research projects. Additionally, they are encouraged to engage with the wider scientific community at HITS and in the region in form of lectures, teaching and scientific discussions.


We offer an honorarium and a working place at HITS. In addition, travel expenses will be covered.

Varying from 3 weeks to 6 months duration, the Guest Professorship Program gives plenty of flexibility to arrange your research stay at HITS.


Please send us your CV and a letter of motivation at At later stages, a 1-page proposal for your research stay will be required. This proposal will be made in collaboration with the hosting group leader(s) at HITS and will cover joint research topics, talks and teaching activities in the region such as Heidelberg University or Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
