Planning Your Career and Building a Profile

Even for young female researchers who are still in the early stages of their career it is important that they set themselves apart with an individual research profile. Such a profile ensures visibility within the field of study as well as within the scientific community at large. The workshop offers the opportunity to develop strategies for your own career and research. The focus will be on research support measures and questions relating to mobility in particular: What should my profile look like to help me reach my career goal? Which steps have already been completed? What needs to be done going forward and how can I incorporate the demands for internationality and networking into the planning of my next steps?

Peer Coaching – Peer Group Meetings Guided by a Supervisor

You have chosen a profession in an academic setting, you are reflecting on and planning your career; you have already experienced success, but you have reached limits, too. An important issue on the way to professorship is the professionalisation as a university teacher. There are many aspects to this job, some are obvious, some are part of the "hidden curriculum". With our "Peer Coaching" training programme we would like to offer you a forum for exchange among peers, for the supervision of scenarios from everyday academic life and for deepening your knowledge of internal university processes and activities.

"Peer Coaching" is advice from equals for equals. It is suited for people from different disciplines but similar professional fields who would like to support each other. By receiving feedback from others, "Peer Coaching" offers you the possibility to adjust your own perspectives, to get to the heart of things or clarify important aspects.

 

Key Topics

  • Confidence at Work
  • Leadership and Management Skills
  • Professional Handling of Competition

Mentoring and Training

Mentoring and Training (Mentoring und Training: MuT) is a programme of the Conference of Equal Opportunities Officers at Universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg (LaKoG) funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

->Homepage

MutThe programme supports women in the stage of their post-doctoral lecture qualification and young female researchers who are aiming at a full professorship. It is designed to encourage them to realise their skills and use their chances successfully, to instruct them in organisational and administrative questions and prepare them for executive functions. The Mentoring concept is thereby intended to counteract discriminatory factors that make it harder on women to succeed. As it stands, women have far less access to information, contacts and networks; they often lack role models and a systematic career management. This is where women can partake of their mentors' knowledge and experience. They receive: advice on building a qualification profile, guidance in times of professional orientation, access to build informal work relationships, as well as attention and encouragement.

Fortunately, finding female and male mentors is not a problem.

Qualifikation 2016
Training and individual advice form another part of the MuT programme. You can train your skills in areas such as didactics, (self-)presentation and appearance, while you can get advice on individual career planning, during application processes or on establishing contacts.

 

Science Web

The first Mentoring and Training orientation event took place in September 1998 with 88 interested parties having responded to the announcement (numbers have increased significantly in the meantime). Following an application process, a first group of female researchers was selected – due to the composition of the candidate pool, there are more natural scientists than humanities scholars among them. The participants, all in the process of qualifying as a professor at universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg, spent three days expanding their knowledge of social, structural and organisational conditions at universities. They also began catching up on what many of their male colleagues have come into through "learning by doing" in continuous employments.

An important part of the programme was the analysis of one's own scientific career progression. It is on this basis that aims of the mentoring relationship were developed. By now, we are pleased to report that the first experiences with mentoring partnerships have not only been very positive; they are also an encouragement to proceed with the project.

When asked at the outset about their expectations, the participants were interested in "getting a better idea of their career prospects", "getting to know female colleagues in similar situations", "receiving advice in the field of didactics and rhetoric", "learning about leadership of employees", "getting out of one's ivory tower" and "receiving pointers en route to professorship". After the event, the feedback has been consistently positive and all participants want to continue with the programme.
