Tenure track and conditions of employment

at the Faculty of Science and Engineering
Tenure track career path

The Rosalind Franklin fellowships follow the general tenure track career path for scientists in the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

The position will be for a maximum of six years as tenure track researcher at the level of Assistant Professor (Universitair Docent; UD). After five years, the performance of the assistant professor will be assessed. A positive assessment will lead to a tenured appointment and a promotion to adjunct professor (Universitair Hoofddocent; UHD). An adjunct professor has the ius promovendi, i.e. the right to formally complete the supervision of PhD students and is entitled, but not obliged, to run his/her own independent research unit. After another 4-7 years the adjunct professor may apply for promotion to full professor.

For a detailed description of the tenure track career path, please go to Career Paths in the Sciences.
