Karriereforum (Career Forum)

The Karriereforum (career forum) is an annual symposium organised by the Karriereforum working group of the DBG. It aims at scientists in earlier stages of their careers (between PhD and first appointment as a professor), and provides a forum for discussion of and exchange on career related issues.

The topic of this year's forum is "Towards the Professorship - Dos and Donts in Academia". The presentation by Mr. Noack (DHV) will give an overview over the German tenure-track system and point out the major pitfalls. Further, within the framework of a podium discussion we will give opportunity to all participants to ask burning questions to our knowledgeable discussants.
