The Gutenberg Council for Young Researchers (GYR) supports early career researchers in planning their career and helps them make the transition into work. For this purpose, it funds the project “Career perspectives for postdocs”.
The project’s goal is to provide comprehensive information, advice and qualification offers in order to support young researchers in making important career decisions and developing their professional profile accordingly. In addition to academic career options, the project also looks at alternative career paths. To help the postdocs choose which career fits them best, the project combines already existing and new concepts and develops a variety of training and qualification programs.
By developing guidelines for career development discussions with postdocs, the project also provides support for mentors.
