Workshop - Developing your "Research Brand"

At pivotal points in their career, researchers often feel a need to deliberate their position and competencies, and to balance various career options. This applies especially to the transition period between qualification phases, e.g. at the end of the postdoc phase and on the edge of becoming an established researcher. Information on research funding and career development schemes as well as awareness on own strengths and interests are key for taking informed decisions on the way forward.
In addition, employers and funders increasingly ask for applicants’ clear-cut research profiles and descriptions of their trajectories in order to check the fit with their institutions or programmes.Individual short coaching sessions during the optional second day help the participants pave their way towards successful applications in view of their needs and ambitions.


  •  Individual self-positioning and look ahead: Analysis of current status and (career) goals
  • Typology of research funding and career development schemes
  • Participants’ current research profile: Individual analysis and qualified feedback
  • Participants‘ future research profile: Intended perception, incl. outline of individual strategy
