English term or phrase: Assistant actually, until I receive tenure.
I would use for "tenure", "puesto" o "cargo", but in the next sentence, the interlocutor asks: "What´s that?" refering to "tenure"
And the answer is: "Tenure is the magic word, the 'open sesame' to economic security.

puesto permanente


Explanation:
In the case of education, specially, it can be a "puesto permanente" or "titularidad", that means that it is a permanent position.
I think a permanent position has to do with economic security (at least some...)
Hope it helps!
