Career planning in academia and business

Karriereforum addresses UA Ruhr’s postdoctoral researchers of all fields. During the one-day events, postdocs have the opportunity to receive comprehensive information on career planning and can enter into intensive discussions with distinguished personalities from science and business.

What does Karriereforum offer?

Karriereforum demonstrates individual career planning options in a very concentrated and efficient way. Take the opportunity to exchange ideas with experts on higher education policy and career-related topics on a high level. Additionally, Karriereforum enables (inter-)disciplinary networking with other researchers in the Ruhr Area.

Karriereforum takes place twice a year and always deals with a selected topic such as university and non-university career paths, job profile professorship, science management, career abroad or research funding.

You can arrange your schedules individually and select between two different formats:

  • Discussion groups offer you the opportunitiy to exchange in a small group (five to fifteen persons) on selected topics. Participants have the chance to ask questions in an intimate atmosphere and to discuss with the present guests and high-level experts.
  • Individual consultations are approx. 25-minute face-to-face interviews with experts including representatives from funding and research institutions, coaches or company representatives. Here you can get advice on your very individual questions.

Who can participate?

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

Language of the event is German. Should you wish for a specific discussion to be conducted in English, please make a reference in your registration. The individual consultations are available in German and English.

 

Next date: The next Karriereforum will take place on 1 October 2020 at TU Dortmund University.

Program

19th Karriereforum "Academic Careers Beyond Universities"

How do I apply for a professorship at a university of applied sciences? What career options do I have as a postdoctoral researcher in business? What chances does a position in an non-university research institution offer?

The 19th Karriereforum focuses on academic career paths outside the university. In group discussions, you will receive valuable information and tips, for example on appointment procedures at universities of applied sciences or on successfully entering the business world as a postdoc. Clarify your individual questions in a discussion with the invited experts or in a confidential consultation. The networking lunch offers you the opportunity to get in touch with peers from the UA Ruhr and to expand your academic network.
