PhD finished – What comes next? 18.07.2017 | 10:00 Uhr - 12:00 Uhr
Career Talk – special event for postdocs and JunProfs of TU Braunschweig from abroad, 18. Juli 2017, TU Braunschweig.
Academic careers in Germany are traditionally connected to habilitation. More recently, alternative ways have been established which qualify for a professorship. In addition, there are also a number of other permanent university jobs at or just below the level of professorship focusing on teaching, laboratory coordination, management, etc. However, these positions are rare in most subject areas. Career Talks are designed to provide scientific staff from abroad (PostDocs, habilitated or not and with up to eight years of postdoctoral research experience, as well as junior professors) the chance to gain insights into academic career possibilities in Germany.
Prof. Dr. Admela Jukan (Chair for Communication Networks) and Prof. Dr. Wolf-Tilo Balke (Information Systems) talk about their own experiences, including important factors and career decisions made along their own career paths.
The event allows for individual questions as well as discussions with the speakers and intensive exchange between the participants.
