Dorothea Schlözer Career Coaching (before 2019: Qualification Programme)

Are you a female postdoc at the University of Göttingen or at the Göttingen Campus and would like to plan and advance your academic career in a more targeted way?
Would you like to have more interaction in a permanent group with fellow female scientists and scholars?
Do you wish to expand your academic key competences and strategically prepare for the next career steps?

The Dorothea Schlözer Career Coaching supports you in your career planning and development and prepares you for an executive position in academia. In an interdisciplinary group of six female scientists and scholars within the framework of regular coaching appointments, you will reflect in a one-year program on where you stand in your career and what the necessary next steps are. In addition, you will take part in workshops on career-related topics such as international research funding, training on how to apply for a professorship, leadership competence and self-presentation (to be selected as desired). You will benefit from networking events as well as from demand-oriented talks held by internal and external lecturers.

Target group
The programme is aimed at all female postdocs, junior research group leaders and junior professors of all disciplines at the University of Göttingen and the Göttingen Campus.

Requirements
The events will be held bilingually (German/ English) as far as possible (depending on the language skills of the participants). Basic knowledge of both languages is nevertheless desirable and a prerequisite for some events.

Participation in all events is free of charge. For material, drinks and catering during the events, a small fee will be charged.
