As Assistant Professor you will enter a tenure track that, if followed successfully, will lead to a Full Professorship in approximately 10 years. In case of a full-time contract, you will initially be appointed for 7 years and your performance will be assessed after 5 years. This moment may be extended with at most one year in case of a life event (e.g. prolonged illness or maternity leave). If your assessment is positive, you will get a tenured appointment as an Associate Professor. If you are hired at the level of Associate Professor, your position will be tenured from the onset.

4 to 7 Years after being appointed as Associate Professor you will be assessed for promotion to the position of Full Professor.
