The Tenure Phase: From Appointment to Tenure Evaluation

Assistant professors are expected to develop their academic profile during the tenure phase. To give them guidance, they are accompanied by a mentoring team comprised of experienced professors.

Scientists in conversation

The university follows the progress of its assistant professors through performance interviews and status assessments. The quality-based tenure evaluation takes place at the end of the tenure phase. A positive result is required for promotion to a tenured W3 professorship.
