Tenure Track

Tenure track and tenured scientists are fully independent Principal Investigators (PIs) carrying out their research activity (see research lines) in the frame of the Strategic Plan. 

Tenure track scientists are typically hired upon international calls. An international Search Committee, consisting of three external members, one representative of the STC, and one representative of the Recruitment and Promotion Committee (RPC- an internal committee consisting of Tenured PIs, Center coordinators and Deputy Directors), is established by the Scientific Director to evaluate applications and create a short list of candidates to interview. Short listed candidates are invited at the IIT Central Research Laboratories for a public oral presentation and for the  interview. Candidates may access the tenure track at junior (stage 1) or senior level (stage 2 without tenure or tenured). The maximum duration of the tenure track is 5 + 5 years (stage 1 + stage 2). A peer review evaluation must be passed at the end of each phase. Senior scientists can also be recruited directly as tenured scientists upon recommendation of the STC and the RPC.

 

ERC Grant winners

IIT has many ERC winners within its staff. The Scientific Director, after consulting  the STC and the RPC, may grant ERC winners access to a tenure track position. Generally, ERC Starting Grant winners will be offered a Tenure Track Stage 1 position, ERC Consolidator grant winners a Tenure Track Stage 2 position, whereas Advanced Grant winners can be considered directly for tenured positions. The Tenure Track Package may include additional intramural funding.
