Universität Hamburg’s German-language academic search regulations (Section 1, paragraph 4) and German-language equal opportunity guidelines (II.1.3.) note that particular efforts should be made to attract female candidates during the recruitment process.
Likewise, the German-language recruitment guidelines for the academic staff personnel department (WiPR) stipulate that particular efforts should be made to recruit women staff members.
These particular efforts may include the following measures:
- personally contacting potential applicants or suitably qualified candidates
- urging colleagues and academic societies to encourage suitable applicants to apply for positions
- forwarding job advertisements to subject-specific women’s mailing lists, which already exist in some disciplines
- informing women’s academic networks
