The Graduate Center Plus

The Graduate Center Plus (GC Plus) is your central point of contact at the University of Duisburg-Essen for interdisciplinary questions concerning doctoral research, the postdoc phase, and the path to professorship. We guide you on your career path with transparent information and individual counselling according to your needs.

Our broad training and event programme promotes your personal development, informs you about career options after the doctorate, and offers you many opportunities to network with other researchers and share experiences.

Online workshops and counselling

The COVID 19 pandemic challenges us all in a special and new way. In this situation, we would like to support you as best as we can. Since it is currently not possible to hold on-site events and consultations, we have temporarily changed our offerings into online formats.

Home Training Days

Workshop programme

Counselling on the Compatibility of Family and Home Office

Home office during corona time is not comparable to a normal home office day. Where otherwise there are child-care centers, schools, or nursing staff available for at least part of the day, a few hours for undisturbed work have now become even rarer. Because of this special situation, we offer individual consultations for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who are caring for children or relatives.
