Developing a unique research profile plays an important role in establishing a successful research career. This workshop will enable participants to further plan their scientific careers and develop their research profiles, allowing for their individual trajectories.
At pivotal points in their career, researchers often feel a need to reflect on their competency and their own position and to balance various career options. This applies especially to the transition period between qualification phases. In addition, potential employers and funders increasingly require clear-cut research and career profiles from the applicants in order to check whether they fit the position within the institution or program. Knowing your own strengths and interests as well as the relevant funding programs and career development schemes are the key to taking considered decisions on the way forward.
In this workshop, we will first help you to analyze your status and goals. Secondly, the workshop will give an insight into the research system in Germany and Europe as well as into different funding and career development schemes so that in the end you will have further elaborated your own specific research profile.
(Optional) individual coaching sessions on the second day will help you to pave your way towards successful applications with reference to your own needs and ambitions.
