The time of qualification after the doctorate up to the professorship or another permanent position in science and research, presents you as early career researchers with various challenges. Meeting these challenges, positioning yourself optimally, increasing opportunities and minimizing risks is extremely advantageous, especially in this qualification phase.
In the postdoc phase, important decisions for your research career take place. You begin to develop your own independent research profile. On the basis of important career components, such as publications, third-party funding, research experience abroad or (international) cooperations etc., you plan and pave your scientific career path. You may also be in an orientation phase and consider whether to take the path towards professorship or choose another non-university career path.
No matter what career path you want to take or what questions accompany you, the SICSS supports you on your personal career path with years of experience in advising, coaching and training.
Our services range from networking opportunities, personal advising and coaching as well as interdisciplinary qualification.
In Germany, fixed-term contracts below the professorship level are still the rule. The WissZeitVG regulates the conditions of fixed-term contracts in this context and thus enacts a special regulation for fixed-term contracts for scientists.
An evaluation report of the WissZeiVG was published on May 20.
A conference that addresses the evaluation "Good working conditions in science - Towards a reform of the WissZeitVG" will take place on June 27. More information and registration:
