The academic career
Pursuing a professional activity in a university is a project envisaged by many doctoral students.
However, posts available on the academic work market are scarce and recruitment processes are demanding.
Selection procedures are based mainly on the « up or out » principle.
In order to maximise your chances, it’s useful to be acquainted with the different stages of the academic career, as well as the principal appointment criteria of universities.
