The University of Göttingen is offering a mentoring program for female doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at Göttingen Campus, designed to accompany young female researchers through this phase of their development. It represents a contribution to increasing the number of women in leading positions at universities and non-university institutions.
Dorothea Schlözer Mentoring Program
What are my career prospects following my doctoral degree? What criteria are paramount in deciding to pursue an academic or non-academic career? 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 hierarchic independent mentoring relationship with a professor and the exchange of ideas with other doctoral and postdoctoral researchers can provide important orientation and support at this stage in life.
