Advice – Transferable skills training – Networking

Tenure Track Academy

A tenure track professorship opens up the opportunity for a lifetime professorship at an early stage. For this purpose, you must master two evaluation procedures and provide evidence of research, teaching, and leadership skills. The Graduate Center TU Dortmund University supports you in this process with individual advice, targeted transferable skills training, and networking within the peer group.

Transferable skills training

In precisely designed workshops for the career phase of tenure track professors, you can specifically develop essential areas of competence that you need for your goal of a lifetime professorship. In addition, the workshops offer space for inter-department, university-wide networking.

Upcoming workshops

Further workshops on transferable skills within the framework of the Tenure-Track-Academy will be available here shortly.

Networking for Tenure Track professors

As a tenure track professor, you are usually the only one in your Department in such a position. For a successful fulfillment of your evaluation criteria on the way to your lifetime professorship, strong networking at the same career level can therefore be of particular value. For this purpose, we offer an additional networking opportunity with your colleagues with tenure track in addition to the exchange format Junior Faculty Impuls.
