Career planning for postdocs

Dauer: 2 Tage // Sprache: englisch
Themenfeld: Karriere & Bewerbung // Zielgruppe: Post-Docs

Little teamwork, high degree of competition, short-term contracts and more criticism than feedback

Academics are prone to feel a lot of pressure in the postdoc phase. Now is the time to take decisions that will determine your personal and professional future. Do I have what it takes to go for an academic career, or will I be happier somewhere else? This workshop is designed to provide guidance on what career path is right for you and will give you some insights into how career objectives and ambitions can be achieved, with a focus on identifying different courses of action. Clear and smart decisions can only be taken from a strong basis of self-confidence and motivation.

Matthias Merkelbach

What do I want? What are my skills and abilities? Maybe I should…? The big issues in life will only very rarely be solved through casual chitchat. It will take careful consideration to decide whether you can and want to remain in the academic field or instead choose a non-academic career. This workshop will provide guidance for finding out which path will lay a solid foundation for the future, both on a professional and personal level. A series of interactive exercises will give you a clear idea of where you are at and make it easier to define what options there are.

“If only I could get the funding for this great research idea…!” On the way to a permanent position, your researchers depend on ad-hoc funding to finance their project and prove their worth. This seminar supports participants in learning how to adequately prepare their own successful applications for scholarships, travel grants and research funding (both in Germany and beyond). The workshop includes face-to-face sessions to discuss individual situations and prepare successful applications through a dedicated tailor-made approach.

Targeted job applications

“Submitting a job application? I haven’t done that in such a long time…”

2 Tage  |  englisch
Matthias Merkelbach

What used to seem a trivial and straightforward task can be quite a challenge now, especially if you are coming from the academic world. However, success in the job application process can be instrumental in determining whether or not you will make your lifelong dream a reality, or, at the very least, what prospects you have for the future. We will discuss and prepare the written part of an application and the actual job interview in detail. Interactive exercises will encompass thorough analyses, followed by self-monitoring, and will finish off by focusing on how to present oneself in an assured manner.
