The Dorothea Schlözer Mentoring Programme offers female Postdocs on Göttingen Campus the chance to promote their career development and prepare them for a leading (international) role in research and academia.
It is designed to accompany young female researchers through this phase of their development and represents a contribution to increasing the number of women in leading positions at universities and non-university institutions.
Duration: 1 year
Application: 1-31 August 2017
Start of new round: November 2017
What are my career prospects as scientist/scholar? What criteria are paramount in deciding to pursue an academic or non-academic career? Why is networking important? How should I behave in competitive situations? And how can I combine my family life with a career in academia or elsewhere?
Questions like these demonstrate that a successful career is more than just delivering optimal results at work. A hierarchy-independent mentoring relationship with a professor together with the exchange with other postdoctoral researchers can provide important orientation and support at this stage in life. The participants are provided with target-specific trainings over the duration of the programme round.
