Next application period: Mentoring Program TANDEMplus 2023 for female Postdocs


The postdoc-phase is a time full of challenges: exploiting new research areas; a new role at the institute or in a project; perhaps even taking over first managerial responsibilities, etc.

At the same time, setting the course for your career is in focus: would you rather stay in academia and aim for a professorship, or would a managerial position in the industry be a better fit for you?

TANDEMplus will support you during this important phase of your career. The program, held in English, will help you with choosing career options and strategically planning the next steps in your career development.

The program (currently planned with a mix of online and face-to-face workshops and events) consists of the following modules:

  • Mentoring: Individual one-on-one mentoring with a leadership experienced person of your choice
  • Workshops: Exklusive qualifying offers on relevant topics such as: Career management and career development, leadership skills and conflict management
  • Networking: Networking events that help with expanding your personal and interdisciplinary networks

Application Deadline: October 17 – November 18, 2022

The program starts in January 2023 with an introductory workshop (January 20, 2023).
