Abstract

The university career systems of five hegemonic European and American countries are ideal-typically described, contrasted and visualized using official academic staff statistics – the German habilitation-model, the French habilitation-and-tenure model, the British tenure-model, the tenure track-model of the USA and the Russian chair-model. Their relative attractivity for international mobility of highly qualified academic staff is discussed and compared.

This paper is a condensed and updated English version of data and ideas published in two books (Kreckel et. al. 2008, Kreckel/Zimmermann 2014) and several articles only available in German. Its line of argument is adapted from Kreckel/Ananin (2017).
