Recruitment process – for Associate Professors, Senior Researchers and Professors

The recruitment process at DTU takes three to six months on average, depending on the type of position.

After the application deadline, the Head of Department selects applicants for assessment based on the advice of an internal DTU Appointment Committee. All applicants are then immediately notified whether their application has been accepted for assessment. The Head of Department subsequently appoints an external Assessment Committee tasked with carrying out an assessment of the selected applicants. Selected applicants are notified of the composition of the committee. Applicants will be continuously informed about the progress of the procedure by email.

DTU employs various testing tools as part of the recruitment process in the lead up to a second interview.
