Career planning in academia and business

Which are the next steps after the Postdoc phase? What career options do I have as a postdoctoral researcher? Which funding program would be suitable for my next research project? The Karriereforum for postdocs is all about your individual career planning.

What does Karriereforum offer?

Taking the next steps in your postdoctoral career, the Karriereforum provides you with hands-on experience: For one day, renowned experts will offer input on university and non-university research careers or aspects of research funding, and answer your questions. You can also get advice on personal career strategies in confidential consultations.

The Karriereforum takes place twice a year and deals alternately with the following topics:

  • Research careers:
    Here, for example, you will receive information and advice on appointment procedures at universities and universities of applied sciences, moving into non-academic research, and other alternative career fields for researchers.
  • Research funding:
    The focus will be, among others, on the German funding landscape, selected funding programs and the acquisition of third-party funding.

The included networking lunch gives you the opportunity to exchange experiences with other postdocs and to expand your interdisciplinary network within the University Alliance Ruhr.

Who can participate?

Postdoctoral researchers of all fields of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and University Duisburg-Essen.

 

Next date: The next Karriereforum will take place on 23 September 2021 and focus on the topic "On the Way to a Professorship".

Program

21st Karriereforum: On the Way to a Professorship

Thu, 23 Sep 2021, online via Zoom

This time, the Karriereforum is all about the career path to a professorship – at the university and universities of applied sciences as well as private universities. Our invited experts will take time for discussions and answer your questions, e. g. about appointment procedures for a professorship or specifics of career paths in the German science system. In addition, you can benefit from short consultations on your individual career development offered by experienced coaches.

Put together your own individual schedule and choose between group discussions and individual consultations:

  • In group discussions, proven experts will provide input and answer your questions.
  • Individual consultations are approximately 25-minute one-on-one consultations with experienced coaches.

Please register between 15 July and 8 September (see "Registration" section on this page).

The Karriereforum will be held bilingually. The language of the individual program items is indicated in the titles.
