Professors perform a wide range of tasks in research, teaching, services, promotion of early career researchers and self-administration. They enjoy a high degree of autonomy that ensures the freedom and independence of their research and teaching activities. The University of Basel distinguishes between professorships with tenure and tenure track, professorships without tenure and adjunct professorships, with the details set out in the regulations for academic staff (Ordnung für das Wissenschaftliche Personal).
