We are happy to announce the next Career Planning Workshop “What to do with a PhD?” for late-stage PhD students and early postdocs.

Date: Monday, 3 February 2014, 9-17 o’clock

Place: GZMB building, seminar room 0.232

Duration: 1 day

Goal: Getting to know about professional perspectives and reflecting about own suitability to different career paths

The workshop deals with what career means and which personal career objectives matter. Participants are introduced to different science-related career paths in the public sector (including universities, but not restricted to) and private enterprises, and which technical and personal skills matter, respectively. Moreover, participants get the opportunity to reflect their own competences and objectives as well as their suitability to these different career paths. Finally, participants develop an individual strategy for their next career steps.


If you would like to take part in the workshop, register for the GGNB Career Services here and write an e-mail to the coordinator Katrin Wodzicki ( The e-mail should include a short motivational statement (Why do you want to take part in the workshop?).

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis! Please note: Confirmation of registration will not be sent between 19 December 2013 and 5 January 2014 (due to holiday break of the coordinator).
