Peer reviews for the Alexander von Humboldt Professorship

The Alexander von Humboldt Professorship is awarded to world-leading researchers from abroad, across all disciplines, whose academic achievements will help to enhance Germany’s sustained international competitiveness as a research location.

In order to identify the best researchers for forward-looking development strategies, the Humboldt Foundation’s Selection Committee needs your independent statement.

Your assessment of the following key selection criteria is important to us:

  • Is the nominee at the international forefront of research in his/her field?
  • Is the university’s strategy for integrating the nominee and the latter’s importance for achieving its strategic goals convincing?

As an independent peer reviewer you will be given access to our peer review portal. Here you will find all the documents to be reviewed, an online form for creating your review, as well as information on the programme and other guidance.

Further information

Your review will, of course, be treated as strictly confidential. The Humboldt Foundation will only make it accessible to those involved in the selection procedure. We ask in return that you maintain confidentiality towards those directly involved as well as third parties.
