CARRERAS, J.. Evaluation of teaching and faculty promotion (VII). University Spanish legislation (e): modification of the Organic Law of Universities. Recruited staff with indefinite contract (2004-2005). Educ. méd. [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.4, pp.205-221. ISSN 1575-1813.

The Organic Law of Modification of the Organic Law of Universities (LOMLOU), promulgated the year 2007, included referring dispositions to the recruited professors with doctorate qualification (PCDs) that supposed the consolidation of the direct contracting way as alternative to the way functionarial in the academic career. The Law established that the contract of the PCDs would be indefinite and with full-time dedication. Determined that these professors had full autonomy in teaching and research, recognized their condition of eligible for the individual organs of government (save for the charge of Rector) and attributed them balanced vote in the University Cloister and in the election of Rector. Furthermore, by means of modification of the General Law of Health, the LOMLOU determined that could be established linking of welfare positions with positions of PCD. For which it concerns to the requirements to achieve to a position of PCD, the Law suppressed the need to accredit three years of teaching and researcher, established by the previous Law of Universities; but maintained as requirement a positive evaluation of teaching and research by an external assessment body (accreditation). This article analyzes comparatively the processes of accreditation developed by the National Agency of Evaluation of the Quality and Acreditation (ANECA) and by the assessment bodies specified by the Regional Autonomous Community laws, as well as the recruitment processes developed by the universities. Besides, the characteristics of the diverse figures of PCD established by the Autonomous Communities are described.

Keywords : Appointment of the recruited staff with doctorate qualification; University Spanish legislation.
