The TUAT Graduate School of Agriculture and Institute of Agriculture invites applications for a tenure-track position for a term of five years based on the tenure-track system of the TUAT Graduate School of Agriculture and Faculty of Agriculture.
This is a tenure-track system that hires young researchers for a fixed term and trains them to become excellent faculty members of the Institute of Agriculture and the Graduate School of Agriculture, where they can play an active role in the future. After gaining experience in research and education during their terms, they will be evaluated fairly and rigorously to determine their suitability as faculty members, and will be granted tenure as associate professors (or lecturers) of the University (as tenured faculty member with no fixed term of service). In principle, the hired young researcher will be granted to lead an independent laboratory and will receive start-up funds and a mentor to help them get their research off the ground. In addition, his/her effort on teaching and services will be partially reduced from that of full-time faculty member. Advising graduate students will be approved by a separate evaluation of qualifications. A tenure review will be conducted in the third and fifth years of the tenure track. If he/she is evaluated to have satisfied the prescribed criteria during the period of the tenure track, he/she will be hired as an associate professor or lecturer at the University as a full-time tenured faculty member.
