Support for young scientists with care responsibilities

Written by

Individuals who care for children or family members and teach and conduct research at the same time are currently facing very special challenges, as the Corona pandemic continues to result in frequent caregiver absences.

Please check the following document for your application to student assistant funds via FEMPOWER@MLU, a project of the Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity (website) at MLU.

Numerous studies show that the care of (younger) children and the care of relatives in particular leads to considerable burdens for the persons concerned and consequently to strong delays in their qualification and further career steps. The Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity would like to mitigate this disadvantage in the form of personnel support by research assistants.
