Career goal professorship
This program is designed for researchers of all disciplines of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen, who are leading their own research group, holding a Junior Professorship, are currently working on or have recently completed their habilitation.
What does CoachingPLUS offer you?
You have already gained experience in various fields in your current position: you know what it means to set up and manage a research group. You have already written one or the other research proposal and successfully raised funds. You are becoming more and more familiar with committees and university structures supporting and accompanying you. One of your next major challenges will likely be the appointment procedure for a professorship.
With CoachingPLUS, we would like to support you in your current career phase but also prepare you for your next career steps.The special feature of this program is the combination of seminars and individual coaching sessions, letting you benefit from a very individual support. Additional value is provided by the small size of groups (six to nine researchers) and the related opportunity of (research related) networking within the University Alliance Ruhr.
Who can participate?
Researchers of all disciplines of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen, who are leading their own research group, holding a Junior Professorship, are currently working on or have recently completed their habilitation.
