Career Paths in Academia: (Funding) Opportunities for Postdocs (26/11/2020)

Date: 26/11/2020, approx. 13.00-15.00

Format: Online workshop via Zoom

Target group: PhD Students in the final year and early-career postdocs.

Description: It is well known that pursuing a career in academia can be tedious and many young researchers continue their career beyond a PhD without being aware of the career system. They are expected to raise third-party funds, but are not given any advice and training on how to apply for these funds.

In this workshop, you will get an overview of the largest funding organizations in Germany and the third party funding system, as well as general insights in the career paths at a university. The workshops aims at early career researchers and doctoral students who want to gain insight into the system and prepare for their first application in Germany.

What this workshop is not about: Applying for research funding groups & larger collaborative projects. If you are looking for more information for these formats, refer to our Postdoc101 series.

Trainer: The course will be conducted by Dr. Olga Malets and Dr. Sarah Förster from the TUM Talent Factory and National Funding Team of TUM ForTe. At TUM, the TUM Talent Factory is the central point of contact for young researchers who are planning to apply for third-party funding. We assist young researchers who are already working at TUM as well as focus on winning young talents over for a long-term career at TUM. Our services include the support of researchers who apply for funding and provision of information about opportunities and programs.

Negotiation and Conflict Resolution in Science (01/12/2020 and 08/12/2020) (fully booked)

Date: 01/12/2020 and 08/12/2020

Format: Online workshop via Zoom. The trainer will work with two groups of participants in two slots (9.00-11.00 or 11.15-13.15 respectively on both workshops days).

Description: As we progress in our careers, our jobs will increasingly require skilled management and negotiation. The way that we decide to interact with others will determine the quality of our collaborations, but also our job satisfaction. Negotiation skills are always in high demand; these skills apply to all aspects of communication, in and outside of the workplace.

This course will help you recognize and improve your use of influence and persuasion. We will sharpen our negotiation skills by learning to assess positions and leverage power without damaging long-term communication. We will look into common complaints that have been known to slow the progress of your work, and train in possible workplace scenarios. The aim of this course is to reduce possible frustration and to improve your work efficiency by reducing/resolving conflicts and avoiding miscommunications. Offline course work will include a reflection on your own communication style. Together we will work to reach a higher collaborative potential and smoother academic experiences.

Course format: The workshops consists of the two online meetings and additional video material and assignments. Participants will have access to the online course material one week before their first Zoom meeting and need to complete an assignment in between.

Trainer: The workshops will be conducted by Dr. Andrew Wold. Dr. Wold is an international trainer and neuroscientist. He conducts research at the Linköping university hospital in Sweden.

Format: Online workshop via Zoom

Target group: This workshop is designed for research group leaders and advanced postdocs already have their own group.

Description: Most hiring processes are hotbeds of biases. Very often, we try to hire clones of ourselves, either deliberately or subconsciously. This in turn destroys any notion of wanting to hire ‘the best’. In this workshop, we´ll identify steps in the hiring process, where these biases arise and how we could possibly eliminate them in order to really hire ‘the best’. It´s a relevant exercise for everyone interested in how biases influence our work, not just hiring managers.

Topics include:

  • Biases which distort out thinking- in staff selection and beyond
  • Develop your own hiring process step by step
  • How to get most information out of application documents and interviews
  • Discrimination-free negotiation process for a stronger team

Course format: The workshop consist of two webinars with self-study and homework in between. The participants will be split in smaller groups and individual time slots will be assigned before.

Date: 18-19/01/2021, approx. 9.00-17.00

Format: Online workshop via Zoom

Description: The workshop addresses the main contents concerning the communication between researchers and the media. Do you ever feel daunted by the idea of giving a statement or being interviewed by the Press? Media contact is inevitable in our fast-moving, globalized world and learning how to communicate with the press is essential, no matter how big or small the organization.

A report in the media is a welcome, valuable opportunity to promote individual business and present your projects to a wide audience, however it can also be an incredibly intimidating and challenging experience. You could get stuck trying to navigate a challenging topic or have your words twisted in a moment of confusion. We all know negative stories are out there and those are the ones that sell despite the positives and life enriching experiences offered by science.

The workshop will address common challenges that arise such as:

  • How to react when asked for a TV statement or an interview
  • How to give an interview or statement with confidence
  • How to interact with the camera
  • How to avoid mistakes or give statements that can be taken out of context
  • How to prepare for critical questions

On the second day of the workshop, Ms. Appelhagen will focus on camera training and can also give you individual advice on your appearance on Zoom.

Date: 20-21/01/2021, two afternoon sessions

Format: Online workshop via Zoom

Description: Teamwork is essential in academia, but it has never been easy. Especially giving and receiving feedback does not come natural to us. In recent years and across all fields, its relevance has increased: We need to learn more, collaborate better and create a culture of trust and mutual aid. How do we rise to this challenge? – The good news is that decades of empirical work, alongside recent innovations, offer practical methods that make feedback work.

This Workshop offers specific strategies and tools to form a culture of constructive feedback for academic teams. It helps to establish the right mindset, provides psychological insights and enables an exchange about best practices, processes and rules.

Focal points of the Workshop:

  • giving feedback that is candid and caring
  • soliciting feedback (from busy people)
  • handling emotions in difficult conversations
  • building structures that support constructive feedback
  • forming an appreciative mindset
  • identifying and dealing with the needs behind the need for feedback

Career Development through Research Funding (29-30/04/2021)

Date: 29-30/04/2021

Format: Day 1: On-site workshop, 9.00-17.00, Day 2: Individual Coaching Session with each participant, Center Campus

Description: Researchers are increasingly faced with expectations to raise third-party funds if they want to pursue a successful research career. Yet, applying for third-party funds is not an end in itself and could even be detrimental to research careers, if disconnected from own scientific or life plans or scientific goals. This workshop, thus, aims to clarify which kinds of funding opportunities are suitable for the participants’ respective purposes.

In addition, it offers insights into the objectives and practices of research funding institutions and peer review procedures. During a second day, individual short coaching sessions will help the participants to pave their way towards successful applications in view of their needs and ambitions.

Trainer: The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Bärbel Elija BleherScholz CTC GmbH. She is full-time coordinator of an international Helmholtz Research School and has extensive experience in research and teaching. She also has a large expertise in research management and since many years applies and acquires third-party funds and acts as a reviewer for funding organizations.

Course Format: The first day is a group workshop. On the second day, you have the chance to discuss a topic of your choice during an individual coaching session.

Informationen über Workshopformate, Hygieneregeln und Absagefristen

Regarding the registration form: Please make sure you add a motivational statement for each registration. The statement becomes crucial when the number of applicants exceeds the maximum number of participants that can take part in a course.

You need to use your TUM email address to register for a workshop. If you do not have a TUM email address (yet), please explain your situation in the motivation statement to ensure that you are eligible. Researchers who still join TUM during the next months with a position or fellowship can already register for workshops. Researchers who are not affiliated with TUM cannot take part in the workshops.

On-site Events: We offer a mix of on-site and online events. Workshops scheduled as on-site events will take place at the TUM City Center Campus (mainly Arcisstr. 21). The course description includes whether it is an on-site or an online workshop or a mixed method workshop. We will make sure that social distancing can be observed. In case on-site workshops are not possible due to the Corona-related restrictions, we will discuss an alternative with the trainer and the selected participants.  

Corona-related Hygiene Rules: We have to point out that a minimum distance of 1.5 m between any two persons must always be maintained in on-site workshops. In the seminar rooms, disinfectants will be provided. Until further notice, wearing a mouth-and-nose cover (MNC) is mandatory in all traffic and meeting areas within TUM buildings, as well as in the washrooms. The MNC can be removed once seated in the seminar rooms provided that a minimum distance of 1.5 m is maintained between any two persons. The participation in the workshops is prohibited if you suspect you may be infected or have symptoms of illness. In that case, please inform the TUM Talent Factory team as soon as possible. Further information is found on the following website.

Workshop Registration & No Show: We invite professional external trainers for our workshops, who usually work with small groups of 8-12 postdocs. Since these workshops are quite expansive and many postdocs are interested in participating, we need participants to be fair and only accept their workshop spot if they are really able to participate in the full workshops. We often have a substantial amount of last-minute cancellations due to other commitments or participant who do not show up at all. This is not only frustrating for us and unfair for other postdocs, but may also reduce the funding we receive the conduct these workshops in future. Given the fact that dropouts due to disease or quarantine are likely during the winter semester, we would really ask you to make sure that participate in the respective workshop you have been selected for or cancel at least 10 days before the event. Researchers who do not show up for a workshop or cancel last minute are not able to participate in future workshops organized by the TUM Talent Factory.

If you are not sure whether you can spare 1-2 full days on a workshop, maybe the Postdoc101 Talk Series might be more suitable for you. The talk series will take place on most Wednesdays during the winter semester 2020-2021 between 4-6 pm. The program will be announced at the beginning of November.
