The HRA is already planning for the future. The 4 topics transferable skills, advising, career development, and internationalization will be the focus of our future program, which will consist of various workshops, events, and innovative programs, in addition to our extensive information and advising service. The HRA will also offer different formats on current topics like scientific communication, work and health, or data management. We will evaluate the many suggestions and the results from the BarCamp sessions and the feedback cards, and take them into consideration when planning our program.
Specific HRA opportunities
The HRA, together with its cooperation partners, already has information sessions for some of the topics proposed at the BarCamp: Sustainable research data management (15 January 2019, in German) External funding for the early postdoc phase (23 January 2019, in German) Good scientific practice (24 January 2019, in German) Going abroad during your doctorate (26 March 2019, in German). In addition, the HRA will be offering workshops on the following topics (among others): dealing with stress, self-marketing, leadership training for postdocs, résumés and cover letters, giving up or going on, finishing your dissertation. The strong interest shown by English-speaking researchers in the BarCamp has strengthened the HRA’s resolve to offer as much of our program in English as possible.
After the BarCamp, the HRA team threw itself into preparations for the next big networking event in the fall of 2019: In cooperation with various institutions and companies, we have planned a Career Day for Hamburg’s doctoral and early career researchers.
For those who can’t wait until the fall, HR development’s COMPASS event series “Insights into ...” has scheduled company presentations earlier in the year: Insight into an international NGO using the example of Viva con Agua (22 January 2019) and Insight into Computer Science Using the Example of Adobe (27 March 2019).
