So finden Sie den passenden Job: Stellensuche auf dem außerakademischen Arbeitsmarkt (cancelled |March 23, 2020)

Written by

Für viele Wissenschaftler*innen stellt sich die Frage, ob nach Abschluss der Promotion noch länger an einer Wissenschaftskarriere gearbeitet werden sollte. Denn Wissenschaftskarriere in Deutschland ist schwierig: in der Regel geht es darum, den Weg zur Professur erfolgreich zu gehen. Da viele Promovierende und PostDocs nicht Professor*in werden, ist es in jedem Fall sinnvoll, einen Plan B zu haben und Alternativen zu kennen. Ziel des Workshops ist die Feststellung der eigenen Kompetenzen (fachliche und personale Kompetenzen) und der Klärung, wie zu diesem Kompetenzprofil passende Stellen auf dem außerakademischen Arbeitsmarkt gefunden werden können. Die Teilnehmenden sollen so in die Lage versetzt werden, nach dem Workshop weitere Ideen zu entwickeln, in welcher Form und mit welchen Inhalten sie in ihrem weiteren Berufsleben tätig sein wollen. Sie sollen außerdem ermutigt werden, die nächsten Schritte zu gehen.

Vorstellungsgespräch und Gehaltsverhandlungen (May 27, 2020)

Written by

Wissen kann man sich anlesen, Erfahrung nicht. Da sich die meisten Akademiker gerne einlesen, sind die Antworten im Vorstellungsgespräch sehr ähnlich. Das hat zwei mögliche Konsequenzen: Der Personaler ist gelangweilt oder er fühlt sich durch die 08/15-Antworten provoziert. Beide Reaktionen haben meist ein gemeinsames Ende: Die Stelle bekommt jemand anderes.

Das Seminar zeigt auf, wie Sie sich ideal auf ein solches Gespräch vorbereiten, 08/15-Antworten vermeiden und wie Sie den Personaler mit Ihrer Persönlichkeit von sich und Ihren Gehaltsvorstellungen überzeugen.

Inhalte

  • Die Teilnehmer/innen lernen mentale Lösungsstrategien in Stressinterviews.
  • Durch Übungen wird die Schlagfertigkeit im Gespräch deutlich erhöht.
  • Die Teilnehmer/innen lernen in Drucksituationen gelassen zu bleiben und angemessen zu reagieren.
  • Jede/r Teilnehmer/in durchläuft ein Stressinterview, um seine erarbeiteten Strategien 
    „live“ zu testen und anschließend zu verbessern.

Academic writing: How to create good texts (May 6-7, 2020)

Written by

A COOPERATION OF INGRA AND IRTG “Polymers: random coils and beyond”

For many young scientists writing is the most difficult part of research work. Poor structure, breakneck formulations and unclear argumentation lead to texts which are not too user friendly. However, for the success of academics it is essential that the content is successfully conveyed to the relevant target groups – from the subject community to the wider public.

The methods and instruments of scientific writing can be learnt. With a few select mechanisms for structuring and techniques for building arguments, it becomes possible to articulate even complex data clearly and comprehensibly. Coherently built up and convincingly formulated, even academic texts can be an exciting read!

Target audience

Doctoral students working in natural and life sciences
