Hi jimandmargaret-ga, 

I believe your question, in order to have a fair chance at being
answered, requires clarification on a number of points. Bearing in
mind the price you have set, in particular,

1) For which countries would you like information?
2) In what field(s) of study are you primariy interested?
3) What starting point do you assume, i.e. already hired? If so, as an
exisiting (non-tenured) Assistant Professor, graduate teaching
assistant, other? If not, at what starting position from what previous
4) In what types of institutions are you interested? Private
universities, or public? Large or small? Specialized or general? How
many examples in each country?
5) What kind of data would satisfy you? Anecdotal? Official
requirements and time estimates from individual institutions? Other?
6) Have you done any research of your own on this subject already? If
so, what have you found that is or is not satisfactory.

The more you can narrow down the parameters of your question, the more
likely it will be that a Researcher can assist you.

Thank you,
