Joint Appointments

Currently, there are 26 joint appointments between the MLU and it's member institutes. The number allows to closely link the university and Leibniz research institutes with regard to teaching and research. Thus, students are able to benefit from this close and wide cooperation by getting in touch with internationally renowned personalities as teachers, supervisors and researchers. The following table provides a list of the current joint appointments.
