Seven researchers placed on TUT´s tenure track
The tenure track system is the key mechanism for recruiting academic researchers and is commonly used in universities worldwide.
At TUT, all vacant professorships will be filled following the tenure track procedure from 2013 onwards. The concept was already piloted at TUT in 2011 - 2012 and six top researchers have already been appointed.
Four-level tenure track system open to talented individuals
The tenure track system offers the recruited researchers a clearly defined career path towards a professorship and enables them to devote their time to research and the advancement of their fields.
Tenure track positions are advertised internationally. The fields of the positions are specified in broad terms to ensure a large pool of highly qualified candidates.
The University ensures that researchers placed on the tenure track have the opportunity to proceed to the next level, provided that their professional performance meets the predefined criteria within the given deadline.
At the moment six departments at TUT are in the process of recruiting tenure track researchers: the Departments of Electronics, Materials Science, Civil Engineering,Communications Engineering and the Optoelectronics Research Centre.
