Tenure-track & junior professorships

Tenure-track and junior professorships are characterized by the particular challenge of balancing your own qualifications, academic excellence in research and teaching as well as academic self-administration and personnel responsibility for a limited period of time.

We would like to support you with targeted training and support services.

If you have any questions about our programmes, please feel free to contact us at any time.

To allow a better differentiation of our target groups, we apply the European Framework of Reference for Scientific Careers:

First Stage Researchers (R1)                Doctoral candidates
Recognized Researchers (R2) Doctorate degree (PhD) holders or equivalent who are not yet fully independent
Established Researchers (R3)     Researchers who have developed a level of independence, e.g. research group leaders, junior-/tenure-track-professors
Leading Researchers (R4)  Researchers leading their research area or field, e.g. full professors, ERC Consolidator or Advanced Grant holders
