Female postdocs and experts in the field of personell management in academia

Women are underrepresented in higher-level positions in academia. Many women fall out of academia in the years following their completion of a PhD — the so-called leaky pipeline.
The conditions for postdocs are often marked by uncertain career perspectives. Typical challenges faced in the postdoc phase are balancing family and career, looking for research projects, building up experience in university instruction, career orientation inside or outside of academia, and questions surrounding a stay abroad. In all of these areas, gender-specific factors play a role.
The barcamp “FemPostDoc” seeks possibilities for supporting women in the postdoc phase.
