Tea Time – Post-doctoral academic career paths


Doctorate – and then...?
Exploring academic career paths for doctorate holding scientists

Post-doctoral career paths can vary widely, both within and outside academia.

The event series “Tea Time” offers you the opportunity to discuss career options with scientists, who pursued a career in academia. Invited speakers will reflect on their career paths and experiences, and will explain their approach to career planning after finishing their dissertation.

After a brief presentation by our guest, we will give you the opportunity to ask your questions. We will discuss goals and experiences related to the time after defending a dissertation. All questions about career ideas and choices are welcome.

This series is organized by the Leipzig Science Network and Leipzig University (Academic Staff Development at the Department of Research and Transfer & the Initiative TalentTransfer at the Career Services).
