Q&A: Ways to Professorship
Question and answer format for early career female researchers
February 11, 2022, 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. via zoom
(Keynote lecture from 1 - 2 p.m., Q&A with professors from 2 - 3 p.m.)
In cooperation with the Center for Gender and Diversity and the UHH's Equal Opportunity Unit, the Hamburg Research Academy again organizes the Q&A format for female researchers on the UN's International Day of and Women in Science.
In our Q&A format on February 11, 2022, you are invited to talk to renowned female professors and ask them everything you always wanted to know about a career in academia. Outstanding professors from different backgrounds are available as experts and look forward to your questions. They will talk about their experiences, e.g. in the acquisition of third-party funding, the change of universities/countries, the compatibility of professorship and family, and their individual paths to professorship.
In addition, this year we also have a keynote lecture (in German, with English slides) on the general conditions of a professorship in Germany, the requirements, the application process, the interviews, etc. given by Dr. Hanna Kauhaus (University of Jena).
Use this opportunity for informal exchange to further your career!
