Female Professors

The Gender Equality group at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of Kiel University have published an updated version of „die Professorinnen“ brochure portraiting female professors and their research at the faculty. Statistics produced by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 2020 show that the proportion of women in professorships at the faculty is still very low. This brochure shows the variety and diversity of career paths and life experiences made by the female professors at our facility. The brochure was written to inspire and encourage future female professors to continue their career in academia.
