A full-time position in the rank of Lecturer is a tenure-track
appointment for a period of five years, at the end of which a tenure
decision will be taken, depending on an overall evaluation.

A full-time position in the rank of Senior Lecturer is in principle a
tenured appointment. In the case of a first appointment as professor
("ZAP" or "Zelfstandig Academisch Personeel"), in the rank of Lecturer
or Senior Lecturer, however, the Board of Governors of Ghent University
reserves the right to grant a temporary, tenure-track appointment for a
maximum period of three years, at the end of which a tenure decision
will be taken, depending on an overall evaluation.
