applicant wishes to be taken into account in the evaluation of
his or her scholarly, teaching and other qualifications. 
Three copies of these publications should be included in the
application. Material in electronic form - such as discs - is
not accepted.

The appointment committee is only required to take the
specified research material into account to the extent that it
is necessary to make an assessment of the applicant's
qualifications and it may also consider research material
which has not been specified. In such cases the applicant
will be notified.

The names of the members of the appointment committee will be
sent to the applicants. The complete recommendation made by
the committee will be sent to all the applicants. Information
on other applicants must be treated confidentially.

The professorship is a tenured position under the Ministry of
Education. The annual salary is approximately 430.000 DKK
after contribution to the pension scheme.

Further information about the position may be obtained from
