Career Development, Equal Opportunities and Support for Scientists with Family

Our priority is the promotion of young scientists, their support in terms of Personal Competence strengthening and future Career Development. We provide Mentoring and Coaching Programmes, Training and Workshops for all levels of young researchers starting at Ph.D. student level, for postdoctoral fellows or scientists in their first group leading positions as senior research fellows and Junior-Professors.

The cluster of excellence aims at increasing the number of women in science. Collaborations with Gender Commissioners and scientists specialised in the field guarantee the development of programmes according the needs of the specific target group.  By systematic monitoring of the equality-promoting measures an annual evaluation of gender equality improvement will be performed.

It is our mission to improve workplace practices that promote a healthy work and family balance. Therefore, we are continuously extending care services for our employees' children. Our daycare offers enable especially young families to organize their professional and private lives flexibly. Here, our special concerns are individual and flexible solutions for parents with very small children willing to come back to work. 

 

Our support offers have two major scopes:

1. Career Development

 

2. Support for Scientists with Family
