Do I stay in academia and become a professor? What else is out there? After the PhD there are many different options for scientists inside of but also outside of academia. This workshop facilitates your personal career decision by bringing together an individual qualification profile with your personal motivators and skills. Transferring these into a realistic scheme for the next five years is also part of the workshop. Your identity as a scientist but also in other professional roles is often influenced by factors like gender and background – this workshop will address these topics to strengthen your self-efficacy in regard to your career.
