Participation record at the 20th Career Forum
About 130 participants informed themselves about third-party funding for their postdoctoral careers online during the 20th Career Forum. Which funding program suits my research project? How can I finance a research stay abroad? And what should I keep in mind when applying for third-party funding? These and many other questions were answered during the day.
In the beginning, the Vice President Research at TU Dortmund University, Prof. Nele McElvany, welcomed the participants via Zoom. Afterwards, renowned funding organizations such as the German Research Foundation and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation presented their funding programs for postdocs and provided information on application requirements.
Successful applicants reported on their personal experiences and gave advice. In addition, the participants had the opportunity to discuss individual questions with the invited speakers and representatives of the research support services of the UA Ruhr universities.
The next Karriereforum will take place on 23 September 2021, and will focus on career options after the doctorate.
