The Appointment of Professors at Private and State Universities of Applied Sciences

Start of the project: 2023-Jun-01 - End of the project: 2026-May-31

The project “The Appointment of Professors at Private and State Universities of Applied Sciences (BeProf)”, which is divided into four sub-projects, examines the appointment of professors at private and public universities of applied sciences as part of a comparative case and field analysis. The focus is on strategic personnel planning, operational personnel selection and professorial personnel structures at universities of applied sciences. With regard to personnel planning, the study examines the aspects according to which the position table for professorships and the organization of individual professorial positions are aligned by the universities. With regard to operational personnel selection, the formal requirements, the procedural elements of the decision-making process, the constellation of actors and the selection criteria for appointments are analyzed. The comparison of professorial staff structures at private and public universities of applied sciences is carried out according to characteristics such as the number, subject focus, value or gender-related staffing of positions. The overall aim of the project is to compare the special features of the appointment process at private universities of applied sciences, which have hardly been researched to date.

The project is being carried out by the German Center for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW), the International University of Applied Sciences (IU) and the European University of Applied Sciences Hamburg (EuroFH) and is funded by the Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Abstract

Extracting information from diverse websites is increasingly important, especially for analyzing vast data sets to detect trends, gain insights. By studying job ads, researchers can monitor employer demand shifts, assisting policymakers in aiding affected workers and industries. However, extraction faces challenges like varied website formats, dynamic content, and duplicate data. This study introduces a method for extracting data from diverse private university websites involving keyword identification, website categorization, and extraction pipelines.
