The DFG Infobrief (3.21) summarises quantitative analyses on the duration and completion of doctorates pursued under DFG-funded Coordinated Programmes based on two studies published by the DFG in 2021.

All in all, in DFG-funded consortia in the programmes Collaborative Research Centre, Research Training Group, Cluster of Excellence and Graduate School four out of five doctoral projects started are completed. Half of doctoral researchers complete their doctorate within 51 months. The duration of a doctorate can of course vary greatly, both from one individual to the next and within the same consortium.

To draw your audience in and to get your main message across, you need a clear concept, proper slides, and convincing visuals. 

The workshop conveys a basic knowledge about concept, design, and visualisation to present research content visually well organized and compelling. The course will equip you with both the concepts and the practical design skills to create convincing presentations and provides the possibility to put directly into practice what you have learned as well as to get useful feedback from group and trainer.

Professionalization through Coaching

In scientific management positions, women and trans*, inter* and non-binary persons (TIN persons) are still clearly underrepresented despite excellent qualifications and high motivation. With the “Professionalization through Coaching” format, the MLU therefore offers individual career planning for scientists (women and TIN persons).

The participants are supported in identifying and developing their potential and making the best use of opportunities, thus successfully realizing the path to a scientific management position. Questions about the development and genesis of a professional identity as a scientist or university professor are just as important as aspects of coping with specific qualification requirements and further life and career planning, whereby the compatibility of family and academic career also plays an important role.
