Selection and appointment procedure

JMU’s research priority areas are interdisciplinary and cross-faculty in nature. Therefore, in open topic procedures, the selection of appointees and their assignment to faculties is made by a central selection committee, which is composed of highly renowned scientists and scholars from within and outside the University. The appointments themselves are then made at the JMU faculties to which the open topic professorships have been assigned.
