1) a cover letter,
2) a full CV (including dissertation evaluations or contacts for at least three letters of reference),
3) an exhaustive list of publications and
4) proof of his research and teaching experience in higher education. A scientific selection committee will meet to examine the application files. Preselected candidates will be contacted for an interview. The candidates selected at the end of these interviews will be invited for a campus visit during which they will be asked to present their research and give a mock lecture. All of which can be carried out, if necessary, by videoconference.

Salary and Benefits are very competitive by international (including North American and European) standards, and commensurate with experience. Subject to certain conditions, the University can aid in relocating.
