Equality at the CRC

The advanced PhD and early postdoc years are essential for academic career development. During this period, scientists are often torn between conflicting priorities of intellectual independence, on the one hand, and meeting professional obligations towards their employers, on the other hand. Postdoctoral candidates are expected to develop an independent publication record, apply for external funding, create a distinct research profile, build a teaching portfolio, communicate their research, build a network, undertake research stays abroad, etc. etc. Which of these tasks are particularly important? What are the top priorities? How important is the habilitation? Which time frame is appropriate and compatible with my personal private priorities? Is an academic career what I really want?

The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to learning about and evaluating the various requirements for a long-term career in academia. Based on this, the participants will review their current academic profiles. Following this reflection, they will develop and specify their next goals and the major steps towards qualifying for a long-term academic career.

Internal Events

The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on Northern, Central, and South America to discuss historical and contemporary developments in health and long term care. In line with the research program of CRC 1342, we are especially interested in discussing the potential role of transnational linkages or interdependencies that contributed to the introduction and any subsequent reforms of health and/or long term care systems within the region. As this also necessitates an understanding of what systems actually looked like at the time of their establishment - however embryonic - another aim of the workshop is to address the challenges of identifying and/or generating reliable data, particularly for Central and South America, as well as for a period of observation that may date back to as early as the turn of the 20th Century.

Attendance by invitation only.
