The programme constitutes a unique chance for highly qualified RUB researchers who had not originally been on the path towards tenure: academics who show outstanding performance in their discipline can be recommended for a Career Track professorship by their faculty. RUB has thus created an alternative to traditional appointment procedures.
The RUB Career Track is open to the following researchers:
- junior research group leaders
- junior professors
- members of the Academic Senate on limited appointment
- outstanding early career researchers who have received an appointment from outside the university.
