05.06.2019 Extra-university career paths for doctoral candidates -
The view of employers

A doctorate is a (first) independent research project to achieve the highest academic degree and thus a milestone on the way to an academic career. But not all doctorates can or want to remain in the highly competitive and precarious academic system. Some leave the university immediately after their doctorate, others wait for their first or second PostDoc. But what does the employer think of young professionals with a doctorate? What expectations can and must we expect and where is a doctorate perhaps viewed more critically? The working group of UniWIND, to which Dr. Simone Brandes (philGRAD) belonged, has investigated these and related questions. She will report on the results of the working group, which have also been published by the University Association for the Qualification of Young Scientists in Germany (UniWiND).

This HeRA Lunch session is held in German. It takes place in Building 21.02 (SSC) in room 21.
