The Hamburg Research Academy, the main port of call for doctoral and early career researchers, offers individual advising services as an integral part of its larger portfolio. These services are currently being offered via videoconference or telephone. We are happy to refer you to the right party or service provider in Hamburg after an initial orientation.
In addition to our advising services, we host HRA Spotlights, regular information sessions. These 2-hour sessions provide insight into core topics related to the doctoral and postdoctoral phases.
Statement of purpose
We are committed to confidentiality, reliability, and responsibility. This means that we ensure confidentiality in all of our advising sessions while also expecting the researchers we advise to honor agreements and take responsibility for their personal situation.
