Doctoral candidates and postdocs do not have a predetermined career path. They have lots of options within and outside academia, but these options do not take care of themselves. So you have to find and open up suitable areas of work for yourself, create your own professional profile and prepare for job applications and appointment procedures.

The following workshops offer training and advice for critical steps, like grant application or job application. They help you make informed and reflected decisions and strategically develop your academic or non-academic career.

All current workshops of this category are available on the qualifications portal of Jena UniversityExternal link.
