Career Counselling and Postdoc Counselling

The Graduate Academy offers individual consulting and counselling to all postdocs as well as PhD candidates who are planning their career after the PhD. Typical questions which can be discussed:

  • Do I want to stay in academia after I finish my PhD?
  • What can I do to improve my chances of doing so?
  • How can I use my skills from academia in other career fields?

You can seek advice about all of the themes that are related to your job situation, such as financing, finding a balance between family and career, international mobility, the Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, the path to becoming a professor and other job possibilities. You can make a personal appointment with Dr. Hanna Kauhaus.

If you want to learn more about career planning and applications, you can also refer to the workshops in our qualification programme.
