Tenure Track Model

For more than ten years now, W2 professorships advertised by LMU Munich have included a tenure-track option. This enables junior academics to pursue an independent program of teaching and research from an early stage in their careers. Post-holders who have demonstrated outstanding achievement can be appointed to a lifetime professorship after three years at the earliest and six years at the latest.

During the second funding phase of the Excellence Initiative, LMU‘s Tenure-Track Model has been further expanded with a view to offering even more attractive career perspectives for outstanding junior academics. Among other measures, LMU is now offering Tenure Track Professorships to ERC Starting Grantees.
