Promoting equal opportunities for early career researchers
On our websites, we give you an overview of the qualification offers which have been designed to promote equal opportunities in the fields of gender, diversity and internationalisation.
Our GC Plus Summer School is an English language compact week where especially international PhD students can enhance their knowledge and skills. Doctoral researchers with disabilities have the possibility to conduct their PhD in the programme PROMI with financial security for three years. Female doctoral and postdoctoral researchers benefit from the renowned programme mentoring3. Additionally, the GC Plus provides individual careers guidance for female researchers. For structured PhD programmes we offer a consultation on the development and implementation of gender equality measures.
Within the Aurora Network, the GC Plus advocates in close cooperation with UDE's International Office the increase of mobility for early career researchers between European universities.
A package full of convincing equal opportunities measures in the research proposal enhances the chances for a positive review. Which measures suit the structure of your PhD programme best, can be best determined in an individual consultation.
