We invite all interested parties to introductory talks and a panel discussion on "Career Development and Leadership" on November 16th, 2022, at the Heidelberg University Graduate Academy. In this panel discussion, which will be broadcast online, the Graduate Academy and experts from both academia and industry will explore many questions about career development for early career researchers. We will welcome input and questions from the participants and there will be open discussion on the challenges and the aspirations of leadership for early career researchers.
We hope you can join us online for what promises to be a lively conversation on career development and leadership in an academic context. Please register by Monday, November 14th on our website!

Eine Dissertation ist ein Großprojekt, das neben der fachlichen Kompetenz eine Vielfalt von anderen Fähigkeiten erfordert. Promovierende müssen ein gutes Zeitmanagement betreiben, ,nebenbei‘ unterrichten, ihre Forschungsergebnisse präsentieren, bei der Arbeit im internationalen Kontext interkulturell kompetent sein, den Berufseinstieg vorbereiten, vielleicht schon eine eigene Familie managen und vieles mehr.
In unserer Vortragsreihe „Primers for PreDocs“ stellen wechselnde Dozent/innen diese und andere Themen in kurzen Lectures vor. Anschließend gibt es die Möglichkeit, bei einem kleinen Empfang mit den Redner/innen ins Gespräch zu kommen.
