  1. Make sure you ask whether it is a 100% job. Many German academic jobs are hired out as 50% jobs. This will leave you with very little money to live on (social welfare level), specifically in a city like Munich

  2. Yes, these are 100% jobs. Our Assistant Professors (on the same A13 "Akademischer Rat" basis) have really been doing fine here in Munich.

  3. Having an education may lead to have a better job, so you will be stable financially. This reduces the risk of street crimes and thefts which occurs as a result of poverty amongst the nation. The more literate a nation is, the lesser the crime rate.german corrector
