Our partner graduate school yDiv offers a career planning workshop for PhD students in their first year.
Career planning is a process that requires i.a. self-reflection, exploring of options and networking – activities that young researchers should engage in right from the beginning of their PhD project. This short introductory course is designed to give new doctoral researchers an overview of career planning and to create awareness for its importance. The following topics are covered in the course:
- What is career planning and why think about it now, at the start of your PhD?
- Where do people with a PhD work and which competences are required?
- Planning without a target – how can you prepare for your next step, if you don’t know yet what that next step will be?
- How does career exploration work and how can you set up your own IDP?
Our partner graduate school organized several complementary skills workshops. Some of them will take place online.

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!
