Tenure track

The competitive and transparent Helsinki tenure track model attracts top scientists from all over the world: we have over 100 assistant and associate professors, over 40 % of which are women. With close to 500 full professors the University of Helsinki is an attractive research and teaching environment.

In the three-level tenure track, a fixed-term assistant professorship of three to five years leads to an associate professorship of three to five years. When the criteria for granting tenure are met, it culminates in a permanent professorship.
