Date: Monday, 18 April 2016, 13-17 o’clock & Tuesday, 19 April 2016, 9-17 o’clock

Place: GZMB, Justus-von Liebig-Weg 11, Seminarraum 0.232

Trainer: Barbara Hoffbauer

Detailed description:

Scientists spend a lot of hard and intense work on scientific questions and projects. They always aim to achieve solid results that can be published in highly ranked journals, since scientific papers are the basis for successful job and grant applications. Sometimes, however, this focus leads to the development of career goals which are being reformulated from one publication to the next whilst the development of a career plan for the mid- or long-term comprising important milestones and alternatives often fall by the wayside. Furthermore, discussions with superiors, mentors and decision makers on one’s own future are perceived as difficult and are therefore avoided.
This workshop will support the participants in identifying their professional and personal goals on the basis of their record of accomplishments to date. Participants will recognize the necessary steps to take and actions to implement. Finally, they will develop their personal career pathway by taking their family environment into consideration.

Registration: Please register here and email to Dr. Katrin Wodzicki, including a short statement on your motivation to join the workshop (Why this workshop?).
