In order to be appointed to a W2/W3 professorship at the TU Braunschweig, it is a prerequisite for candidates in accordance with § 25 Paragraph 1 No. 4 a), b) NHG that they have achieved additional academic or artistic achievements beyond their doctorate.
The additional academic achievements can be documented within the framework of a junior professorship or through a habilitation.
If the candidate does not have this qualification, the so-called habilitation equivalence must be established. This opens up the possibility for candidates to prove with other academic achievements that they have worked actively and with commitment on the innovation, further development and utilisation of knowledge gained with their research. The particularities of the respective discipline are decisive here. The usual publication impact for the discipline and the classification of the candidate's research in the discipline are the yardsticks of the research performance.
In the case of additional artistic achievements, the classification in the artistic work performance of the candidates in their subject is also carried out.
