Welcome to the Doctoral Researchers’ Day!
What to expect digitally and in person on 15 November 2023:
Workshops and coachings
We invite current and prospective doctoral researchers to attend our live online workshops on Doctoral Researchers’ Day. The coachings are only open to Graduate Academy members. Registration required!
Our Doctoral Researchers’ Day evening programme will start at 5pm at Villa Tillmanns, Wächterstraße 30. Registration is requested.
Careers in academia: Doctoral researchers and postdocs between uncertainty and prospects
The evening programme will be held in German.
The German academic system is to be reformed – but what might attractive framework conditions look like? How can we succeed in creating transparent and plannable academic career paths? What options do universities have to attract, promote and retain doctoral candidates and postdocs in the long term? And under what conditions do academics want to work and research in the future?
In a fishbowl discussion, we will be joined by the Vice-Rector for Talent Development at Leipzig University, Professor Roger Gläser, the trade union secretary of ver.di, Hedda Hauser, the managing director of German U15 e.V., Dr Jan Wöpking, and Johanna Kuske, the doctoral representative at UniWiND. Dr Mathias Kuhnt from the Network for Good Work in Science will be the moderator. You can join the discussion at any time! Take a seat on the free chair and join the fishbowl discussion.
Childcare is available during the coaching sessions and the evening event.
