The issue of academic work on the basis of external funds was mostly discussed in the Austrian interviewees and this sub-section thus has a strong, but not exclusive focus on the situation in Austria. First, externally funded positions seem easier to obtain than regular university positions but they are also less attractive (FILP15, AT48). This is due to the fixedterm nature and the high uncertainty and risk associated with external employment as mostly the job ends when the project ends: “The risk to lose your job at a department that relies heavily on external funds is as high as in a private enterprise if funds are running out.
In countries with a chair-system, the only way to tenure was via a “call” or appointment to full professor, this usually took place between the age of 40 and 50. In these countries recent attempts to provide structure to the somewhat chaotic and long postdoctoral phase have been introduced, most notably in the form of a tenure-track. This model foresees a clearly outlined career path towards tenure based on the fulfillment of previously defined criteria. While the tenure-track is generally welcomed by the interviewed academics, they claim that only a very limited number of such positions currently exist.
The interviews indicate that the cornerstone of the academic career is to be “discovered” by, and to be “invited” to work with, the right academic (institutionally, a professor and intellectually, a mentor; there is a “process of motivated search” between masters and apprentices, Zuckerman 1977/1996, p. 107). In other words, “meeting the right academic” does not have to be a random incident; for the most able doctoral students, it can be a mutual intellectual discovery based on social interactions in the academic setting, gradually leading to building partnerships in research between senior academics and most talented, ambitious and hardworking students or doctoral students with specific knowledge, skills and attitudes.
