Heidelberg University Management Programme “Towards a Professorship”
Posted October 01 2018
New call for applications. Deadline expires around November 2018 (individual deadlines from each faculty possible).

Developed as part of the Excellence Initiative in 2009, the management programme “Towards a Professorship” prepares researchers to take on responsibilities in leadership and management, it provides support for their personal career planning and it helps them to develop an interdisciplinary network.

Postdocs, junior research group leaders, junior professors and tenure-track professors are eligible to take part in the programme. The management programme is made up of three modules, each of which takes place over two to three days. The language of the programme is German; therefore, participants need a good level of German (level C1-C2). For the most part, the seminars are scheduled during the semester breaks and are held at a conference center in Heidelberg.


Interesed? Please apply at your respective faculty, as participants are selected by the University, upon the suggestion of the faculties.
