Interim funding for female academics in externally financed temporary positions during periods of parental or maternity leave
Academics can apply for project funding from the University of Münster to cover financial shortfall as a result of taking a maternity or parental leave of absence from an externally financed position which cannot be prolonged (see table).
The following provisions apply to fixed-term contracts at the University of Münster:
|Financing||Qualification||Term of contract||Entitlement to prolongation for reasons of maternity or parental leave of absence|
|University funding||Acquisition of additional qualifications (e.g. doctorate)||§ 2 (1)
|External funding||Employment in externally-funded project and acquisition of additional qualifications (e.g. doctorate)||§ 2 (1)
|External funding||Employment in externally-funded project without acquisition of addition qualifications||
§ 2 (2)
This programme provides some financial security to academics on maternity or parental leave to return to their former position. The funding covers part-time positions for up to three months. Please note that funding is limited and can only be granted if other financing options (e.g. through the respective institute) are unavailable or do not suffice.
The faculties may immediately apply for interim funding. For more details about the interim funding programme and application modalities, please consult our info sheet [de] (PDF).
