The habilitation procedure is initiated by submitting a written proposal of the applicant including the habilitation thesis and all appendices according to the directive to the Dean of the Faculty, through Department of Research, Development and Doctoral Study.
Professor appointment procedure
The procedure for appointment as a professor proves the pedagogical and scientific or artistic qualifications of the candidate who is a distinguished and recognized scientific or artistic personality in his field. The prerequisite for initiation of the procedure is the prior appointment of an associate professor on the basis of a habilitation procedure, if it included the submission of a habilitation thesis. In exceptional cases, when someone who is already a professor at a reputable university abroad is proposed to be a professor, the Rector may, on the proposal of the Scientific or Artistic Board of the College, waive the previous appointment as a prerequisite to initiate the professorship procedure.
Proceedings for the appointment of professors are initiated on the basis of a candidate's proposal supported by at least two written opinions of professors of the same or related field, or upon the Dean's proposal submitted to the Faculty Scientific Board. The proceedings may also be initiated by the Scientific Board of the Faculty on its own initiative. The proposal includes annexes according to the directive .
