Career Development

Supporting academic careers is one of the core tasks of the Weizenbaum Institute. We advise and support doctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers, and research group leaders according to the individual requirements in their respective career fields.

The Weizenbaum Institute ensures the initiation and implementation of high-quality and versatile research projects by facilitating lively exchange between Principal Investigators, research group leaders, and doctoral students. This environment unique to Weizenbaum also facilitates meaningful exchange on central aspects of academic career planning, such as publications, lectures, and third-party funding.
