The period of qualification after obtaining a doctorate, leading up to a professorship or another permanent position in science and research, presents early career researchers with various challenges. Successfully addressing these challenges, positioning oneself optimally, increasing opportunities, and minimizing risks is extremely advantageous, especially during this qualification phase.
During the postdoc phase, crucial decisions regarding one's research career are made. This is the time when you begin to develop your own independent research profile. Based on key career components such as publications, securing external funding, gaining research experience abroad, establishing (international) collaborations, and more, you plan and pave your scientific career path. You may also find yourself in an exploratory phase, considering whether to pursue a professorship or opt for a non-university career path.
Regardless of the career path you choose or the questions you may have, the SICSS is here to assist you on your personal career journey, drawing on years of experience in advising, coaching, and training.
