Gender Equality at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Female Professor Brochure 2015

Die Professorinnen


The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, like the entire University, attaches great importance to gender equality in research, teaching and studies. Up to doctoral level, the men/women ratio is balanced. The higher the academic rank, the more this ratio shifts. Statistics produced by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 2012 show that the proportion of women in professorships is extremely low.
