Sep 8 '21 at 18:45 comment added Dawn +1 for “individualized process” — if you see a line, reach out to the hiring committee chair to find out if they would be open to an upgrade or to someone in your specific area. Make sure they know you are genuinely interested in moving vs looking for a retention offer from current university
Sep 8 '21 at 18:31 comment added Buffy Perhaps not "generally" true, but it matches my experience, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen in a case like this. The OP isn't yet tenured.
Sep 8 '21 at 18:23 comment added Wolfgang Bangerth @Buffy That's not generally true. Once you have been in rank (associate, full) for 2-3 years, you can reasonably expect your new university to hire you at that rank and with tenure. I would think it insulting if an offer was made to someone who has held tenure for 3+ years that didn't come with tenure-upon-arrival.
Sep 8 '21 at 16:43 comment added ProfessorWind-up Useful; thank you. I agree with all you have said, and believe there are considerable challenges. Happily, I have a strong track record to bring to the table, but as an earlier commenter notes there is not necessarily a positive outcome on offer here. I'd opt to wait a year, and have a simpler situation, but in this case I would lose my partner; they will not spend another year here. Notably, because of this, an exit to industry may also be an outcome, although I hope not.
Sep 8 '21 at 15:55 comment added Buffy Note that changing universities, even if you already hold tenure requires, in my experience, an additional probationary period. Perhaps a couple of years. A superstar might be offered immediate tenure, or someone who was invited to apply for a senior position, but for most of us, expect an additional review. It might be fairly pro-forma, but a dean, say, wants to look at you for a bit before giving tenure.
