Ready to Launch Your Career?

The programme “Promotion plus+ qualifiziert” prepares doctoral candidates and postdocs at LUH for career paths outside of academia – application deadline: 15 August 2023

Within the scope of “Promotion plus+ qualifiziert”, doctoral candidates and postdocs can explore career prospects outside of academia. The two-semester programme complements research activities and focuses on management expertise and transferable skills while conveying useful knowledge for a career in the industry or the non-profit and public sector. Moreover, the programme promotes networking with businesses and public institutions in Hannover and the surrounding region. However, in order to personally benefit from the programme, it is essential to think "out of the box", to leave one's own (university) comfort zone and to actively participate in the workshops.

The next round of the programme is scheduled to start on Friday 3 November 2023. In addition to two groups taught in German, there will be one interdisciplinary work group taught in English. The matching workshops in English and German build on each other. Doctoral candidates and postdocs at Leibniz University Hannover in the first two years of the postdoctoral phase are eligible to apply. Spaces are limited to a maximum of 36 participants.

Application deadline: Tuesday 15 August 2023

Course fee: €120 (payable in two instalments)
