The procedure for the granting of a professorship is initiated at the request of the applicant, which is supported by at least two submissions of professors in the same or a related field or by the Dean and/or Rector, submitted to the Academic Council of the FTA. This procedure may be initiated on its own initiative by the Academic Council.
At the request of the Dean, the Academic Council of the FTA shall approve a five-member Evaluation Committee composed of professors, Associate Professors (“Docents”) and other important representatives in the field. The Chair must be a professor and at least three members must be from other institutions than the CZU Prague.
The Evaluation Committee shall present the results of its deliberations to the Academic Council, who shall then invite the applicant to a meeting to give a public lecture to present the concept of some scientific and educational work in the field. After the public lecture, the Council shall decide by secret ballot whether the candidate is to be granted the professorship.
The proposal is then submitted to the Academic Council of the University, after which the candidate again delivers his or her lecture, and then in a secret ballot the Academic Council of the University votes on agreement or disagreement with the granting of the title of professor.
The professor is appointed by the President of the Czech Republic on the recommendation of the Rector of the University through the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports.
