Promoting female early career researchers at UDE

We actively participate in the promotion of female early career researchers at the UDE.

Overview of our activities:

- Coordination of the program mentoring³ within the framework of Research Academy Ruhr (Humanities, Education, Social and Economic Sciences)

- Integration of workshops on career development and qualification for women in our offerings

Our services and activities will be expanded from mid 2019.

Contact and Counselling

At the Graduate Center Plus, Stephanie Sera is your contact person for all matters relating to the promotion of women in the qualification phase. She supports you with information and advice. Get in touch!



As one of 21 partner universities of the "PROMI" project, the UDE currently supports two graduates with disabilities and offers them the opportunity to do a doctorate. GC Plus is the local contact for the project.

Compatibility of Family and Career

International Competencies

GC Plus supports doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in expanding their international competencies. Some of the regular workshops (Training Days) and the GC Plus Summer School are held in English to facilitate international exchange. In addition, we work closely with the International Office and are involved in the Aurora network to increase the mobility of early career researchers between European universities.
