The Faculty of Informatics of MU is accredited for habilitation and promotion to professor procedures in the field of Informatics. The Faculty does not collect fees from applicants.
In the habilitation procedure, the candidate's scientific or artistic qualifications are verified, in particular on the basis of the habilitation thesis and its defence and other scientific, professional or artistic works, and his/her pedagogical competence on the basis of the evaluation of the habilitation lecture and previous teaching experience.
The habilitation procedure is initiated by submitting the candidate's written proposal including the habilitation thesis and all attachments according to the guidelines to the Dean of the Faculty, through the Department of Research Support, Projects and Cooperation with Industrial Partners - Ing. Dana Komárková.
Proceedings for appointment as professor
In the procedure for appointment as a professor, the pedagogical and scientific or artistic qualifications of a candidate who is a distinguished and recognised scientific or artistic personality in his/her field are demonstrated. A prerequisite for the initiation of the procedure is the previous appointment as associate professor on the basis of a habilitation procedure, provided that this included the submission of a habilitation thesis. In exceptional cases, where someone who is already a professor at a renowned university abroad is proposed for a professorship, the Rector, on the proposal of the scientific or artistic board of the university, may waive the previous appointment as associate professor as a prerequisite for the commencement of the procedure for appointment as professor.
The procedure for appointment as a professor shall be initiated on a proposal by the candidate supported by at least two written opinions of professors in the same or a related field or on a proposal by the dean submitted to the scientific council of the faculty. The procedure may also be initiated by the Faculty's Scientific Council on its own initiative. The proposal includes annexes according to the guidelines, which should be submitted through the Department of Research Support, Projects and Cooperation with Industrial Partners - Ing. Dana Komárková.
