What the heck is tenure track? (November 23, 2023| 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 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.


The half-day workshop will focus on tenure track professorships in Germany and address the following questions:

  • What are the specifics and legal conditions of tenure track positions?
  • 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
