ERASMUS short teaching periods – STA program (Staff Mobility - Teaching Assignment)
The STA program provides funding to enable Universität Hamburg's teaching staff to experience short lectureship periods at an ERASMUS partner university. Minimum teaching hours: 5 hours weekly; maximum grant period: 6 weeks! Regular ERASMUS teaching assignments comprise 5 days.
Please contact Angelika Weber from our ERASMUS team (see box on the right).
Payment for STA teaching assignments
In addition to travel costs (EUR 500 max) lecturers receive daily teaching rates of EUR 150. Lesser daily rates will be paid for teaching assignments in Bulgaria (EUR 120), Lithuania (EUR 130), Romania (EUR 130), and Turkey (EUR 140). Additional funding is available for stays in Norway, Denmark, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and the UK. Arrival and departure days will be counted as a single day. The maximum daily funding rate for the second week is EUR 60. From the third week on, no daily rates will be paid any more. As a rule, funding will only be provided for actual teaching days.
Teaching position announcements for the academic year 2013/14 will be posted in May 2013. The application deadline is 30 May 2013. In case of excess funding resources, as in the academic year 2012/13, additional applicants will be considered in the course of the academic year 2013/14.
If the number of applications exceeds our funding budget, applicants will be selected according to the following criteria:
position of the applicant within the agreement's framework, e.g. program manager etc.
particular committment to international affairs
previous STA or other funding received for periods abroad, duration of former STA funding from other mobility resources, number of weekly teaching hours
purpose/goal of the stay abroad
ranking of the partner university within the framework of the Universität Hamburg's internationalization efforts
