Hello,

 

I am interested to apply to your University for a Professor position.

May I ask you to provide me with an email address for your human

resources officer as well as the Dean of faculty/academic director who

are in charge of the faculty recruitment process? Thank you very much

for your support indeed.

 

Best regards

 

Dr. Martin Kroll
