English term or phrase: ... promotion to full professor with tenure after
The term in question is "tenure" which I think has to do with holding a position on a permanent basis [refering mainly to teachers].

Spanish translation:Full professor = catedrático tenure = permanencia
Explanation:
*Full professor* is a rank (the highest rank that academics can attain in their institution). In many Spanish-speaking countries, this is rendered as *catedrático*. *Tenure* means that the individual has been evaluated by the university and deemed worthy of remaining at the institution: tenured faculty cannot be fired without cause (moral terpitude, most often, although dereliction of duty counts too). The purpose is to ensure that faculty cannot be censored in their teaching and/or research.

ascenso a profesor con posesión del cargo después de


Explanation:
"tenure" refers, as the asker suggests to holding the position on a permanent basis. There is no exact translation for the term in Spanish. It is related with "antigüedad", but not directly, as the tenure of some positions is acquired after a brief period of trial, at least in Spain. It could also be translated as "titularidad del cargo"

titularidad, definitividad


Explanation:
It depends on the country you want the translation to, for instance, here in Uruguay tenured professors are "profesores titulares" while in Mexico they are "profesres definitivos". One phone call (or a visit to a website) to a university in the same country of the translation would solve it.
Hope it helps.
