Applying Successfully for Jobs in Academia (K02-02)
Verfügbarkeit - Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden
The rules and requirements for job applications in academia are different from those in other fields. How should application documents look like? Which key skills acquired during dissertation or early postdoc years should be highlighted? How do I prepare for and present myself during the interview and which type of questions should I expect? At the beginning, the seminar will mainly focus on the period prior to the job interview. Participants will identify which postdoc formats (e.g., research assistant, junior professorship) might be suitable for them and their career aspiration. Additionally, participants will learn about the requirements for a full academic profile and analyze the current state of their own profile. Moreover, they learn the specifics about the written application (e.g., cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, research & teaching profile) and how to present their academic profile. Subsequently, the seminar will concentrate on the job interview and the academic job talk. Participants will learn how to prepare optimally for the interview or the oral presentation.
Please note: The workshop will focus on the German academic system. The workshop will not include applications for grants or stipends.
Day 1 of the seminar and the first part of Day 2 will take place as a workshop. The second half of Day 2 is dedicated to individual consultations à 20 min for each interested participant (individual appointments will be made during the first workshop day). Participants have the opportunity to get feedback on their application documents or to reflect on their academic profile in order to derive next steps in their career development.
