The aim of the Marianne Schminder Visiting Professorship is to establish gender research in a variety of contexts at the OVGU. For a period of 2 years, the opportunity is offered to develop one's own research profile, which is connectable to the research foci of the OVGU and equally includes the category "gender". The exact orientation is deliberately kept open, so that cultural and social science research with a gender perspective can be addressed as well as the inclusion of gender aspects in research projects in the STEM subjects or medicine.

Subject-specific gender-related knowledge should be generated and made visible. The aim is to contribute to a stronger structural establishment of aspects of gender research at the OVGU and to ensure a greater diversity of research perspectives.

The professorship is awarded by the university for a period of 2 years. In particularly justified cases, the appointment is also possible for only one year. The connection of the professorship takes place at the OVGU according to the subject specifics.

The Otto von Guericke University understands the visiting professorship as a career step towards a lifetime professorship. On this path, the scientists are to be accompanied with individually designed development offers.
