We provide opportunities and special training for our members and young researchers to support them in their personal career development.
Our specific measures towards equal opportunity
- Structures and funding for career development: A range of transferable skill training courses are offered including proposal writing, presenting in general and at conferences, science communication and many more. We collaborate closely with the Potsdam Graduate School (link https://www.pogs.uni-potsdam.de/), which offers training for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers. We offer courses for all gender, however a number of them are especially designed for female researchers and focus e.g. on their personal career paths and goals by offering professional techniques to overcome female specific obstacles.
- Coaching: the SFB funds coaching sessions specifically designed for the needs of the members of the SFB and specifically offers coaching to empower female scientists.
- MentoringPlus: Individual mentoring for female researchers is provided by our partners from the PoGS (verlinken: uni-potsdam.de/de/pogs/career-development/mentoring-plus.html) and supported by the SFB 1294. The program included three main pillars, which are 1) the mentor-mentee relationship, 2) training in the form of workshops and 3) networking and networking opportunities.
- Providing role models: The SFB 1294 strives to invite accomplished female scientists as guest speakers to colloquia and seminars. We will furthermore provide an opportunity for our female PhD students and junior scientists to have additional informal discussions with these female role models.
- Gender awareness training: Gender awareness is not just a topic for junior researchers, but also concern more advanced scientists including professors and group leaders. This is why we will offer gender competence training for all members of the SFB 1294 to raise awareness for equal opportunity topics in the daily workflow.
We aim at providing a family friendly working environment, especially for families with young children and offer the following support measures.
- Childcare is offered and advertised for every SFB 1294 Colloquium, Spring School, Retreat etc. and after-office-hour event. We can organize ‘childcare-at-home’ and ‘childcare-at-work’.
- If you need to bring your children to work on short notice, we packed special bags with toys, books and games to keep your children entertained and happy, while you can work.
- We support flexible working hours and working from home, e.g. if your child is ill, and provide laptops for these occasions.
- We actively support members of our SFB’s before, during and after parental leave, e.g. in form of childcare, student assistants (where appropriate and possible), advisory structures to support work-life balance
