Coaching for Postdocs and University teachers

Please note: Due to the corona pandemic, personally coaching is usually not possible. Depending on the coach, meetings can take place via phone, webex etc.

Postdocs and university teachers can participate in individual coaching.

Furthermore, doctoral candidates who do a cooperative doctorate can apply for a coaching.

Coaching topics are e.g. career planning or development of a healthy work-life-balance.
5 coaching sessions (each 60 minutes) can be financed.
It is possible to apply for another coaching 12 months after the completion of a first coaching. However, these must be on different topics.
