As part of the perspektive promotion program, we offer women* advice on issues relevant to the doctoral process. The service is free-of-charge, available as a stand-alone appointment or process oriented, and tailored to suit individual needs. It covers, in particular:

  • Decision-making
  • Pathways to a doctorate
  • Funding
  • Planning and organization of the doctoral process
  • Reconciliation of your doctorate with parenthood
  • Supervision issues
  • Difficulties in the doctoral process

The counseling is available in German and English!


We are offering individual counseling on-site, by phone or the videoconference tool StarLeaf. We can also answer shorter questions by email.
