Career Paths in Academia: (Funding) Opportunities for Postdocs (online) 18.03.2021 14:00 - 16:00 (Do)onlineDr. Olga Malets, Dr. Pauline Popp

Format: Online workshop via Zoom

Target group: PhD Students in their final year and early-career postdocs.

Description: It is well known that pursuing a career in academia can be tedious and many young researchers continue their career beyond a PhD without being aware of the career system. They are expected to raise third-party funds, but are not given any advice and training on how to apply for these funds.

In this workshop, you will get an overview of the largest funding organizations in Germany and the third party funding system, as well as general insights in the career paths at a university. The workshops aims at early career researchers and doctoral students who want to gain insight into the system and prepare for their first application in Germany.

Trainer: The course will be conducted by Dr. Olga Malets and Dr. Pauline Popp from the TUM Talent Factory and National Funding Team of TUM ForTe. At TUM, the TUM Talent Factory is the central point of contact for young researchers who are planning to apply for third-party funding. We assist young researchers who are already working at TUM as well as focus on winning young talents over for a long-term career at TUM. Our services include the support of researchers who apply for funding and provision of information about opportunities and programs.

This course will be conducted online.
Technical requirements: Access to internet, laptop, camera, microphone, zoom.
Your email address will be forwarded to the trainer for organizational reasons.
Please note that neither certificates can be issued for this course nor can your participation be acknowledged in your DocGS progress tree.
