On 19-20 November 2013, the Academic Careers Observatory (ACO) of the Max Weber Programme will hold its 8th annual conference on issues pertaining to the academic job market. This year’s conference is titled, ‘The Academic Contract: How Careers and Institutions are Changing.’

The conference will examine the various dimensions of the academic contract and how it is evolving, from the point of view of both the individual and the university. It will analyse the current status of both academics and institutions, and incentives for change, together with the way in which these affect academic careers. Across four panels bringing together academics from different university systems, different regions and different career stages, the conference will discuss the current system, including the challenges of online teaching, from a comparative perspective. To conclude, participants will reflect on the desired path for future change.
