Info event series around the topic of "Tenure Track in Germany"

Jena University's Graduate Academy has teamed up with the Deutsche Gesellschaft Juniorprofessur (German Association Junior Professorship, DGJ) to organise three consecutive info evenings around the relatively new German career path of Tenure Track Professorship. The three evenings in October are meant to provide all interested audiences, particularly doctoral and postdoctoral researchers with a perspective to achieving a German professorship, with useful knowledge around Tenure Track as a career option and strategic career path.
