What the heck is Tenure-Track? (May 20, 2022 | online)

Written by

In the German academic system, Tenure-Track is a relatively new concept. With a tenure-track position, one gets the opportunity to an immediately transition to a permanent position when successfully completing the probationary period (known as the tenure-track phase). The majority of tenure-track positions comes along with a professorship; less common and known are lecturer or researcher positions with tenure-track.

  • How do selection committees work and how is the mid-term and tenure evaluation organized?
  • What are duties and tasks of a tenure-track professor?
  • Where do I get help and orientation beyond my home institution?
  • Q&A
