How many roads ...?

For academic and professional success, it is important to deal with personal career options at an early stage, to establish networks and contacts, and to develop transferable skills in addition to subject-specific skills - regardless of whether you want to work in the academic or non-academic sector. The Summer School for female doctoral students and postdocs at Leuphana is dedicated to the topics of career planning and career development specifically under gender-specific aspects.

The next Summer School will take place from 20 - 22 September 2022 in the proven cooperation of the Graduate School and the mentoring programmes ProScience and ProViae on campus. The range of workshops will be complemented by an aperó for collegial exchange and networking.

More information on the individual events will be published here shortly. Registration will be possible from 1 July.
