In the doctoral or post-doctoral phase, it is very challenging for young researchers to manage family responsibilities and academic qualifications in their everyday lives. Childcare and schools do not always provide an adequate level of care for children in all situations - for example, when important meetings and conferences taking place over several days are required. Yet these in particular are an important part not only of academic qualification, but also of maintaining one's own academic network.
To allow you to cope with these challenges, the University of Bremen offers you a variety of support with Uni KLEX. Depending on the situation and purpose, the offers include financial grants totaling up to 200 euros per year.
The most important requirements are:
You are employed at the University of Bremen as a research assistant (financed by third-party funds, a central university position), lecturer, researcher, junior professor or enrolled as a doctoral student.
There is a demand for childcare outside the regular opening hours of the childcare facility or school (except for school vacations).
It is about one-time and planned appointments or events such as conferences or travels (research trips, conferences) or personnel training measures (plan m, navigare, perspektive promotion, godiverse!), but not about regular events (e.g. lectures).
