Tenure Track - the steps to becoming a permanent employee (teaching positions)

Uppsala University's career system, Tenure track, consists of employment at three levels: associate senior lecturer, senior lecturer and professor. They are advertised positions that are applied for in competition.

Tenure track entitles associate senior lecturers to be considered for promotion to senior lecturer and senior lecturers to be considered for promotion to professor. Advancement within the tenure track system is based on a merit-based evaluation. This means that employees in the career system compete only with themselves, not with their colleagues.
