Description

Poster presentation which won the third prize, for the ESF-NFR conference 'How to track researchers' careers', 9-10 February 2012 in Luxembourg. I tried to make this poster as 'visual as possible'. The diagrams of Dr. X's career are fully hand-made. I am currently (2014) interested in automatic data-driven generation of such images.

Professor Outside A F.V. van der Most, 2012 = Job application 20 30 = Exam 40 50 = Promotion evaluation Dr. X also became immersed in evaluation regimes in the two locations, which involve many other evaluations of different types not depicted here. Regime: the combined result of laws, rules and common practices which exist in a location. Regimes change over time. Career and evaluation regimes intersect. For example evaluations of job applicants may be shaped by national labor laws, but also by international academic peer review practices. In this presentation, both career and evaluation regimes refer to regimes that exist in academia.
