Panel Discussion and Workshop 4EU + "Career Development & Leadership"


Starting November 16th, 2022, Heidelberg Graduate Academy in collaboration with the Heidelberg branch of the 4EU+ European University Alliance is offering a training package on “Career Development & Leadership” for doctoral candidates from all 4EU+ partner universities with international speakers from academia and business. The training package consists of three consecutive events and activities. The registration process for the workshop on November 17th and 18th has closed.

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!

The initiative is financed through funds provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Ministry for Science, Research and Art of the State of Baden-Württemberg.

Primers for Predocs – Strategies for a successful doctorate

Banner Primers Winter 2019 2020

When you are doing your PhD you are managing a huge project – this means you don’t just need competences in your field of research but also other relevant skills. PhD candidates should manage their time, teach seminars, present their research, show intercultural sensitivity working in multinational teams, prepare themselves for a job after their PhD, maybe take care of an own family and much more.

In our new series "Primers for PreDocs" several speakers talk about these aspects in short lectures!  
A short reception after the talks will give you the opportunity to discuss with the speakers.
