This year's Herbstakademie for doctoral researchers of the University Alliance Ruhr offers short workshops, career tips, and networking opportunities from 1 to 2 October. Registration will be open from 4 September, 10 am!
In compact workshops, participants of the Herbstakademie will gain insights into various career-related and interdisciplinary competencies. In short, half-day workshops, you can get an impression of the areas in which you would like to further develop your skills in the future and which competencies are important for an efficient and successful doctorate as well as for your future career.
The topics of the workshops range from storytelling and self-management to presentation training for the disputation or reflection on one's own teaching profile. Herbstakademie starts on 1 October with an introductory lecture on "Career paths in science".
A "networking lunch" during the lunch break on both days will also offer you the opportunity to talk to other doctoral students and to expand your academic network across universities.
Participation in the Herbstakademie is free of charge (including networking lunch). The registration form will be activated here on 4 September, 10 am. The registration deadline is 18 September 2019. The number of places per workshop is limited to 16 to 20 persons. If individual workshops are fully booked before the registration deadline, a waiting list will be set up.
