CoHE Starts Digital Era for Applications for Associate Professorship
January 9, 2021
Under the “Digital Transformation in Higher Education Project” of the Council of Higher Education, the Interuniversity Board terminated the obligation of students to send their works such as books, articles and papers to the jury members by mail when applying for associate professorship.
Associate professor candidates will now be able to complete their applications by simply uploading the works, which they have previously submitted in print, online as of January 20, 2021.
The Interuniversity Board (ÜAK) has implemented many innovations regarding the application processes for associate professorship on the recommendation of CoHE within the scope of the project.
The first innovation was the online viewing of the documents on associate professorship through e-Government Gateway starting from November 12, 2019. In addition, applications for associate professorship, which were previously made twice a year, will be made in January, May and September according to the legislative amendment made last year. The decision will be in effect this month.
- New Era in Applications for Associate Professorship
On the recommendation of the Council of Higher Education, ÜAK decided to implement an innovation that will provide great convenience to associate professor candidates starting from the application period in January 2021.
Previously, the associate professor candidates, who applied from the basic fields of philology, law, theology, social, human and administrative sciences, architecture, and planning and design, were required to send their works such as books, articles and papers for scientific evaluation to jury members by registered mail or cargo. The associate professor candidates, who applied from the field of fine arts, were required to send all their works for scientific evaluation to jury members by registered mail or cargo.
These candidates were also able to submit their works in person to the academic unit where the jury member was serving. Due to this obligation, approximately 6 thousand candidates faced with high costs of cargo and stationery every year.
