Workshops and Events

As an early-career researcher, you can choose from our wide range of free BYRD workshops. On our web pages, we have also bundled the offers of other university-wide providers.

For questions regarding course registration, cancellation of participation, and other organisational matters, please see our General information about BYRD events and workshops.

For Postdocs and Advanced Researchers

In order to support you on your way to a professorship or a position in business and civil society, we offer you training measures and events explicitly aimed at postdoctoral researchers. The focus is on career orientation, networking, and personal development.
In doing so, BYRD offers training for careers in science as well as for non-university career paths. A particular focus is on career orientation and planning. We also offer workshops on how to prepare for an appointment procedure and for assessment centers.

For questions regarding course registration, cancellation of participation, and other organisational matters, please see our General information about BYRD events and workshops.

If you have any suggestions, questions, or special wishes concerning our training program, please contact the BYRD team.

Please note: Only workshops in English language are listed on this page. For the complete list of all workshops of our qualification program for postdoctoral researchers please refer to the German version of this site.

International researchers may also be interested in the events organized by the Welcome Center.
