As a part of its strategy, the University of Vaasa is developing the openness and equality of its community to be attractive and one that people want to belong to.
– We want to give our staff the chance to build a diverse and successful university career with the possibility to develop oneself in an international and inspiring community, says Rector Jari Kuusisto.
The academic career paths include a tenure track path that qualifies for a professorship, a path in project and research work, and a path that emphasises teaching.
– The novelty is that this career model also enables staff that meet certain criteria a smooth transition from one career path to another through an internal application procedure. We aim to be flexible and encourage people in different stages of their careers, describes Vice-Rector Minna Martikainen.
This career model also brings new academic titles outside the career structure, such as Professor of Practice, Executive in Residence, and University of Vaasa Fellow. This is to increase collaboration with other organisations and companies.
