Welcome at the Graduate Academy at Hamburg University of Technology

The Graduate Academy is your central point of contact within the TU Hamburg. Our aim is to offer early-stage researchers an ideal environment in which they can develop in accordance with their individual requirements into independent, sustainable, per-eminent research scientists. We advise you on all interdisciplinary issues that arise during your doctorate or postdoc phase. With workshops and training sessions, information events and networking activities, we support you in developing and expanding your transferable skills and in planning your next career steps. In addition to interdisciplinarity and diversity, issues relating to the compatibility of family and career or science also play a role here. The range of topics covered in our workshops includes project management skills, leadership and negotiation skills, presentation techniques, strategic career planning and self-marketing in academia.

Offers for professors und coordinators

When applying for and implementing coordinated programs to foster young scientists, third-party funders such as the DFG and BMBF increasingly stipulate that doctoral candidates not only enjoy excellent subject-specific training, but are also given the opportunity to take advantage of generic offers to enhance career-relevant skills so that they can develop into scientific personalities at the highest international level. The teaching of so-called transferable skills is thus becoming increasingly important in the training of young scientists.

The Graduate Academy for Technology and Innovation advises you in the application process for research training groups and other programs for the promotion of young scientists with regard to the design of generic components and gender-relevant issues or measures for the targeted promotion of young female scientists. It also supports you in the concrete design, organization and implementation of such measures.

Would you like to be regularly updated on our program and on general topics that are of interest to young scientists? Then sign up for our newsletter!

It will be sent out four times a year via the WiMi mailing list of TUHH. All other persons interested can register via this registration form.
