​The ZALF Tenure Track System offers reliable and transparent pathways toward a long-term career perspective to outstanding scientists. Through the combination of three different Tenure Tracks, topical (Classic) and open (Open Topic) calls as well as weighted evaluation dimensions, the Tenure Track System allows

  • supporting promising early career researchers on their path towards scientific excellence (Regular Tenure Track),
  • attracting successful experienced scientists with essential topical and methodological expertise (Fast Tenure Track), and
  • recruiting excellent leading scientists (Immediate Tenure Track).

The Tenure Track System is thus an essential component of ZALF’s scientific quality management. With its recruitment and continuing qualification of female and male scientists, the Tenure System also contributes to ZALF’s objectives regarding gender equality. ZALF offers its employees great flexibility for balancing their professional and family life. This includes options for mobile work, the mediation of child care, an external consulting for ZALF staff and their families, as well as the family-conscious selection process of the Tenure Track System.
