Careers in Science and Academia – Collective Bargaining Legislation in Research
This section contains information on the Public Sector Collective Agreement on Länder and on the particular situation of collective bargaining legislation in medicine. It also provides information on the pay scale for professors (W salary scale).
One particularly problematic field is medicine, as it applies to both scientific researchers and practicing medical doctors, for whom special regulations for doctors at teaching hospitals (TV-Ä) apply.
The W salary scale, which is increasingly replacing the old C salary scale for professors, is designed to create greater flexibility. The DFG supports all efforts to secure appropriate remuneration for scientists and academics.
How the DFG Supports the Options Provided by the TV-L.
