Tenure-track Position
Tenure of an employed research scientist for this type of position is 5 years, however, tenure can be reduced to 3 years based on the decision by the committee. A tenure-track research scientist can be promoted to a research scientist for a tenured position by being evaluated through a "tenure review". The tenure review will be carried out about 18 months before the tenure expires. The researcher will be reviewed over her/his performance and contributions to AIST missions, and performance in her/his term. In the last 5 years, more than 90% of tenure-track research scientists have been qualified, and enhanced carrieer opportunities are expected after qualification.
