The advanced PhD and early postdoc years are essential for academic career development. During this period, scientists are often torn between conflicting priorities of intellectual independence, on the one hand, and meeting professional obligations towards their employers, on the other hand. Postdoctoral candidates are expected to develop an independent publication record, apply for external funding, create a distinct research profile, build a teaching portfolio, communicate their research, build a network, undertake research stays abroad, etc. etc. Which of these tasks are particularly important? What are the top priorities? Which time frame is appropriate and compatible with my personal private priorities? How important is the habilitation? The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to learning about and evaluating the various requirements for a long-term career in academia. Based on this, you will analyze your current situation. As part of this process, you will review your current academic profile. Following this reflection, you will develop and specify your next goals and the major steps towards qualifying for long-term academic career.
