A Tenure Track, a process leading up to a permanent appointment with the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor, offers young, talented academics a clear and attractive career path. During the Tenure Track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an internationally acknowledged and recognised academic. We offer a structured career and personal development programme designed to offer individual academics as much as support as possible.

Section leader, department leaders and you will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills.

If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, you will be appointed in a permanent Assistant Professor position. TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
