"Rethinking Careers -
Ways Towards Scientific Excellence"




#ichbinhanna. What began as a trend on Twitter lead to a discussion about the young investigators in Germany. The focus is now on structural problems in academic career paths: Equality and diversity aspects, especially regarding work situations, access to academic careers, and the importance of different aspects of work in universities, need to be included when thinking of careers in academia.

In the winter term of 2021/22, and in the summer 2022 we want to connect the views of sciences and politics with the ideas of German and international players via our event series Karrieren neu denken – Wege zur exzellenten Wissenschaft. (Rethinking Careers – Ways Towards Scientific Excellence.)

The next events of the series:

6 International perspectives on post-doctoral careers within and outside of the university. What can we learn from UK, US and the Netherlands?
