Hausdorff Chairs

The Hausdorff Chairs make it possible to complement the faculty without the usual constraints in terms of timing and fields. We seek internationally outstanding scientists who fit into the broad spectrum of the Cluster of Excellence.

Search and hiring process

There is a single hiring committee for all positions, the Senior Search Committee (SSC), with members from all participating institutes. The SSC pursues a proactive candidate-driven approach.


Five Hausdorff Chairs have been appointed: Appointments. We use extra funding from the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (MKW) to appoint two additional Hausdorff Chairs. One of these Chairs has recently been successfully filled, the other one is still vacant.
