Pursuing a career as a Postdoc can make strenuous demands on researchers’ time, energy and ultimately, health. This interactive, solution-oriented workshop looks at ways to reconcile high expectations within academia, a large workload, financial pressures and family needs, and questions about one’s own priorities, values as well physical and mental health.
Post-doctoral positions are usually not that hard to get but finding the right one that can firmly establish a professional career is really challenging. At the same time, scientists towards the end of their PhD don’t have a lot of time to spend on the search for the right post-doctoral position. Therefore, this workshop provides a compact overview of relevant aspects and the opportunity to explore one’s own preferences. Specifically, participants learn to define their own criteria for a successful post-doctoral position, develop their targeted search and application strategy, assess the relative benefit of post-doctoral grants and prepare to harness the full potential of their post-doc interview.
We are happy to announce our next GAUSS Career Service workshop “Exploring the Unknown – The Company World” by Dr. Gaby Schilling.
This workshop is designed for postdoctoral scientists and late-stage PhD students who are currently applying or planning to apply for a position in industry. Getting to know different departments and their functions in a company and reflect about whether related jobs could be a good fit for your interests and profile are the goals of this workshop.
Dates: Tuesday and Wednesday, 20-21 February 2024 Duration: Tuesday, 20 February 2024, 9:00-17:00h and Wednesday, 21 February 2024, 9:00-15:30h Location: GZMB building, large seminar room 0.232, ground floor, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11 (map) Trainer:Dr. Gaby Schilling
Workshop Description: PhD students and postdocs with a background in natural and social sciences are usually not educated in economic thinking. Sometimes they do not know how enterprises create values. Often they have no idea what different departments contribute to the company’s economic success. This lack of knowledge makes them feel insecure about their opportunities in fields aside from research and development. That is the reason why their applications are often not convincing. In this course, participants will learn about different roles and tasks in enterprises and how employees in different departments interact and depend on each other. Playing different roles enables participants to realize for themselves what is the most fun and what fits best to them.
We are happy to announce our next GAUSS Career Service online workshop on the topic “How to plan and write a competitive research proposal” by Dr. Thomas Koch.
This workshop is intended for postdoctoral researchers and late-stage PhD students who are new to the process of applying for a scientific research grant. Ideally, participants should plan to start applying for a grant within the next 6 months. Therefore, it is crucial that you already have an idea about the research topic and possible funding bodies.
Date: Monday and Tuesday, 13-14 November 2023, 9:00-15:00 h; plus 3h pre-teaching prior to the workshop
