The Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” invites doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers to join the Career Day on December 12, 2012, at the Karl Jaspers Centre. The programme is especially designed for young scholars and postdoctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences.
For Doctoral Students
The full-day programme starts with an introduction by professionals with an academic background into their field of profession. They will provide insider’s information on different job opportunities ranging from scientific management to public relations. In the afternoon, the Career Service of Heidelberg University will provide students with a comprehensive overview of the job hunting process, from knowing what skills one has, developing job search strategies to application and interviewing.
During a “Business Lunch”, participants will have the opportunity to individually meet the guest lecturers and trainers in an informal setting, so they can extend their networks within and beyond the academic world.
For Postdoctoral Researchers
In the evening, the postdoctoral researchers of the Cluster of Excellence will be welcomed during a joint dinner. Presentations by central administrative bodies of the University for human resource management, dual career and research management will conclude the event.
The Career Day is open to doctoral students of Heidelberg University and is free of charge. Interested doctoral students are kindly asked to register in advance by sending an e-mail to Oliver Lamers at email@example.com .
The postdoctoral evening is open exclusively to the respective researchers of the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context”. Interested postdoctoral researchers are kindly asked to register in advance by sending an e-mail to Alexandra Heidle at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Career Day is organised by the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies and Scientific Project Management of the Cluster of Excellence. It takes place at the Karl Jaspers Centre for Advanced Transcultural Studies, Voßstr. 2, Building 4400, in Heidelberg.
