€1bn tenure track up and running

The German government has created the first positions under its Tenure Track programme, which is aimed at providing greater job security for early-career researchers.

Germany’s federal education ministry announced on 21 September that 34 universities had been selected in the first round of the competition, which will create 468 tenure-track positions.

The programme, created to run alongside the Excellence Strategy, aims to establish a tenure track throughout Germany, giving young scientists a more transparent and predictable path to professorship. Selected researchers will become professors if they meet all of their relevant goals during a six-year period.
