Ca­reer Devel­op­ment Pro­gram for Postdocs Non-Ten­ure-Track

Non-ten­ure track assist­ant pro­fess­ors at WU are aware from the start of their em­ploy­ment that they will be fa­cing a ca­reer change after six years. The every­day de­mands of re­search and teach­ing, however, can make it hard to find time to make plans for the fu­ture ca­reer after leav­ing WU. This can lead to anxi­ety and missed op­por­tun­it­ies, espe­cially as your con­tract period draws to a close.

This is where the WU Ca­reer Devel­op­ment pro­gram comes in: We are here to help en­vi­sion­ing the (aca­demic) ca­reer after WU and to sup­port im­ple­ment­ing plans in a timely man­ner.

Ca­reer Devel­op­ment Pro­gram for Postdocs Ten­ure-Track

Assist­ant pro­fess­ors with a qual­i­fic­a­tion agree­ment (QA), already know what they are ex­pec­ted to achieve over the com­ing years in terms of re­search, teach­ing, and ad­min­is­tra­tion in order to be given a per­man­ent con­tract as an as­so­ci­ate pro­fessor at WU. The Ca­reer Devel­op­ment pro­gram is in­ten­ded to help reach­ing the tar­gets in these three areas and to provide a solid found­a­tion for the fu­ture role as an as­so­ci­ate pro­fessor.
