Application Training for Researchers
Thursday-Friday, 25-26 June 2020
Female PhD students and postdocs; max. 12 participants
WiNS Adlershof programme (Women in Natural Sciences)
Towards the end of your PhD, the question of how your career will continue becomes increasingly pressing. Often the decision for or against an academic career forms the centre of these questions and all too often it is intertwined with a strong feeling of success or failure. Although the decision for or against academia can surely be seen as defining your career, the possibilities for highly qualified academics are much more diverse and rich than merely working at a university or not. This training aims at extending participants’ perception of their different career options (in- and outside of academia) and offers hands-on advice about participants’ application documents with the goal of producing more authentic applications.
