The Technical University of Munich helps researchers to balance family life with their demands of a career.

The TUM Faculty Tenure Track career system also takes family commitments into account –offering, for instance, more flexible working hours and factoring a researcher’s family situation into their performance evaluations.

Please take note

The actual circumstances may vary for all of the scenarios described above. Individual requirements and corresponding extension periods will therefore be examined and decided on a case-by-case basis.
