Science as a Vocation. Lunch Talk "Careers in the German Academia"

Are you a (Ph.D.) candidate or a postdoc from abroad? Do you have an interest in pursuing an academic career in Germany? Or to spend at least some years of your academic career in Germany. Then, this event is the right one for you!
This lunch talk will be held in English and explicitly addresses international researchers. However, every-one interested in the topic is welcome. The talk will raise the important question of how an academic career in Germany might be successful, what the important factors in preparing an academic career are and what the specific difficulties and obstacles are (if there are any) for young researchers coming from abroad.

Dr. Aamir Dean will talk about his career in Germany and Spain, currently working as an engineer and a research group leader in the Institute of Structural Analysis at Leibniz University. He will give an impression of how an academic job after one’s Ph.D. and/or postdoc can look and what the perspectives and possibilities are.
Representatives of both the International Office and the Graduate Academy will chair the event and can give further information on academic career paths after a Ph.D., circumstances (e.g. the “Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz”) and “specialties” of the German academia.
The lunch talk addresses all young researchers and those who are interested in the topic. As the event takes place at lunchtime, everyone is invited to bring his own food and eat if desired. The lunch talk explicitly serves as an informal offer to get information and get in contact with peers from the university. Thus, questions are allowed and more than welcome!

Event location: International Office, Welfengarten 1A, 30167 Hannover, building 1106 (Grundwald Haus), room 009
