WeWiMento: Career Paths into Science Management
The University of Göttingen offers the WeWiMento programme to PhD students and postdocs from all subjects on the Göttingen Campus, who are interested in a career in science management. The one-year programme is made up of four parts: one to one mentoring, qualification, networking, and job shadowing in different departments of the University. The programme is for beginners and is designed to support participants in developing their knowledge about the career and deciding if it is right for them. It is not an official qualification. Good knowledge of German is necessary to take part in the programme. You can find further information on the website (see right hand column).
If you would like to find out more about science managemen, the GGNB (Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics and Molecular Biosciences) Career Service and the University’s central mentoring department offer the workshop “Science Management - is that something for me?” (in German). As a very good knowledge of German is necessary to work in science management in Germany, the workshop, like the WeWiMento programme, is held in German. You can find out more information about the workshop on the website (link in the right hand column, in German).
