Habilitation and professor degree
Habilitation is a procedure related to awarding the title of Associate Professor to a university lecturer. Associated Professors are appointed by the Rector of Palacký University. There are a few prerequisites for granting the status of an Associate Professor, i.e. a successful defense of the habilitation thesis before a committee, presenting a habilitation lecture, and other requirements, such as quotes and articles in professional journals and scientific experience.
Professor is the highest academic degree at a university. The title of a university professor is awarded to an associate professor who is a recognized scientific or artistic person in his/her respective field and who successfully meets the conditions for the appointment of a professor. A proposal for appointing a professor is assessed by the Scientific Council of the faculty, followed by the Palacký University Scientific Council. Professors, upon the proposal of the Rector, are appointed by the President of the Republic.
