Career Development Support for Tenure Track at KTH
Tenure Track is now established and introduced as a career path at KTH. One of its most important aspects is that the recruitment of Assistant Professors (equivalent) will become the primary path to recruitment to the position of professor.
The career development support aims at clarifying what is required for qualification to the position of associate professor and professor and will offer opportunities for development within areas relevant to a continued career at KTH.
Information session will be held 21 February 2013, from 12-14
(lunch sandwich will be served)
lecture room: D34 Lindstedtsvägen 5, entrance floor
