Career perspectives for Postdocs
The University of Bremen perceives a special mission in supporting its Postdocs and makes an effort in providing attractive career pathways for them since a long time. Some 20 years ago, the University’s own Central Research Development Fund started to finance Postdoc positions. Irrespective of these centrally funded positions, there are additional Postdoc positions provided by the respective faculties and institutes of the University.
The University of Bremen offers an academic environment ensuring that all Postdocs and researchers on the way to tenured professorships will avail themselves of a broad range of support measures testifying to Bremen’s reputation as a talent incubator. The Personnel Development Office offers a wide range of customized trainings, including intensive (career) coaching, and Research Services is ready to help with grant applications for extra-mural funds. There is support in coordinating career and family life, such as the university’s Day-Care Center and other on-campus child-care facilities. There is a dense interdisciplinary research network with the University of Bremen at its center, offering stimulating research to connect to. Furthermore, the university campus offers ample opportunities for engaging in research cooperation with non-university research institutes of excellence, e.g. including institutes of the Max Planck Society, the Fraunhofer Society, the Helmholtz Association and Leibniz Association. The university's close cooperation with the region's private sector provides the chance to engage in R&D activities.
All Postdocs being funded by one of the funding lines mentioned below, are part of a Postdoc-Network stimulating their career in a special way.
