Career planning in academia and business

What are the next steps after the Postdoc phase? What career options do I have as a postdoctoral researcher? Which funding program would be suitable for my next research project? The Karriereforum for postdocs is all about your individual career planning.

What does Karriereforum offer?

Taking the next steps in your postdoctoral career, the Karriereforum provides you with hands-on experience: For one day, renowned experts will offer input on university and non-university research careers or aspects of research funding, and answer your questions. You can also get advice on personal career strategies in confidential consultations.

The Karriereforum takes place twice a year and deals alternately with the following topics:

  • Research careers:
    Here, for example, you will receive information and advice on appointment procedures at universities and universities of applied sciences, moving into non-academic research, and other alternative career fields for researchers.
  • Research funding:
    The focus will be, among others, on the German funding landscape, selected funding programs and the acquisition of third-party funding.

The included networking lunch gives you the opportunity to exchange experiences with other postdocs and to expand your interdisciplinary network within the University Alliance Ruhr.

Who can participate?

Postdoctoral researchers of all fields of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and University Duisburg-Essen.

 

Next date: The Karriereforum "Fokus FH-Professur" will take place on 29 September 2022 at TU Dortmund University.

Program

23rd Karriereforum: Fokus FH-Professur (“Professorship at a University of Applied Sciences”)

29 September 2022
Event in person at TU Dortmund University (Erich-Brost Haus, Otto-Hahn-Str. 2, 44227 Dortmund)
Program overview (PDF)

If you want to pursue an academic career, a professorship at a University of Applied Sciences (UAS) can be an attractive option. How do they differ from university professorships? What are the prerequisites for such a professorship? And how do appointments typically proceed?

The 23rd Karriereforum will provide comprehensive information about the career path of a UAS professorship and offer space for your individual questions. Various experts, including from the Hochschullehrerbund, will take time for in-depth discussions on the topics of application and appointment, professorships at a private UAS, and research as well as research funding at UAS. In addition, different UAS professors will provide subject-specific insights into their everyday work. Furthermore, short one-on-one consultations on individual career issues with experienced coaches will be offered throughout the day.

Please note: The event will take place in German language. Please register by 7 September (see "Registration" section below).
