General conditions of the German higher education system

The general conditions of the German higher education system are such that about four postdocs with habilitation facing one elected faculty member (Consortium for National Report on Junior scholars, 2017, Summary on page 17). This means that you must be realistic about your career chances and also use the postdoc phase to prepare possible career pathways that lead to industry, governmental organizations, associations, service providers or directly into your own spin-off. Consider early on which path suits you and how it can be implemented.
All of these career paths which get further orientation here at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf are supported by the Junior Scientist and International Researcher Center (JUNO) with a broad transferable skills training programme and networking events.
