Information for Newly Appointed Professors
Dear newly appointed professors,
I am glad that you have decided to accept the offer from the University of Potsdam, and I would like to welcome you to our University.
We would like to make your start at the University as pleasant as possible for you. On the following webpages we have therefore compiled an overview of what the university has to offer as well as your main contact persons. I would also like to take this opportunity to inform you about our Coaching for Newly Appointed Professors. This personnel development program is just one way of supporting new appointees at the University of Potsdam.
The Coaching for Newly Appointed Professors program offers a platform for exchange among new colleagues. It also organizes regular workshops that introduce you to the structure and organization of the University of Potsdam. Furthermore, within the framework of a dual career service, it supports your partner in continuing his or her career and provides you with information about relocating with your whole family.
I would also like to draw your attention to our Quality Management Handbook (in German) in which you will find all the important process descriptions about teaching and studies.
I wish you a successful start at the University of Potsdam.
Prof. Oliver Günther, Ph.D.
