In order to verify whether the individual performance meets the requirements of a permanent employment, an evaluation process will be opened not later than after four years of service. The professorship will be funded by the "Bund-Länder-Programm zur Förderung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses." The aim of the programme is to pave the way for a secure career in academia for early stage researchers.

The concrete requirements out of the framework catalogue [https://hu.berlin/tenuretrack_katalog] will be specified in the course of the appointment process.
Applicants are expected to represent civil law and a subsidiary subject in research and teaching.
With filling this position, the faculty also aims at strengthening itself in the areas of employment law or ancient Roman law or another basic subject.
The successful applicant should participate in the teaching of the range of courses offered in the core areas of civil law and the applicable specialization, i. e. subsidiary subject (e. g. "Zeitgeschichte des Rechts" or "Zivilrechtliche Rechtsberatung und Rechtsgestaltung").
