Career Development

Career Counseling

The Zentrum für wissenschaftliche Nachwuchsförderung und Weiterbildung (ZENA) (Center for the Promotion of Junior Researchers and Career Development) supports postdocs in their career development and provides personal counseling on questions related to career planning and the further development of their professional competence profile.

The respective faculties (Fachbereiche) can provide information about the habilitation requirements and procedure.

Mentoring for Career Planning

The mentoring program “Career Planning for Female Researchers” is part of the Equal Opportunity Unit and offers female postdocs a formalized exchange of experience on questions relating to their own career development. It is aimed at female postdocs who want to actively shape their careers, get to know and better exploit their resources and who are interested in new motivation and exchanging experiences.

The focus is on one-to-one mentoring with someone who is experienced in academics and research. We offer a modular program, which includes not only the mentoring relationship but also qualification measures and networking opportunities.[
