Changing Academic Careers LECTURE SERIES

The DZHW Research Cluster invites you to join our “Changing Academic Careers” lecture series every  Monday in June 2021. In four subsequent sessions, the DZHW Research Cluster hosts online presentations by experts in the field of academic careers. Driven by expansion and reforms in the German higher education and science  system, academic careers have become increasingly diverse over the last two decades. However, little is known empirically about the consequences of changed conditions for career paths and individuals’ occupational success. From a perspective of international competitiveness, knowledge about the determinants  of staying in or leaving academia and switching between occupational sectors is highly relevant. Hence, which factors motivate individuals to leave the academic  sector? What makes PhD candidates and PhDs successful within academia? Who becomes a tenured professor? These and related questions are the focus of the lecture series.

Presentations will be held in English, participation is possible with no prior registration.
