After the doctorate: Postdoc at TU Darmstadt
A postdoc is the next step after the doctorate and thus the next step in your academic career. To offer the best possible support for young researchers on their academic path, TU Darmstadt has implemented Postdoc Career Programmes, which meet the particular challenges of an early research career.
The Postdoc Career Programmes focus on four areas of support: (1) creating best possible conditions to start your career at TU Darmstadt, (2) providing financial aid in between two career steps, (3) offering a support package for special scientific purposes, (4) increasing your scientific independence and promoting your path towards professorship. read more
The Postdoc Career Programmes are augmented by a broad range of accompanying supportive services open to all postdocs at TU Darmstadt. These services comprise the participation in the Ingenium professional skills programme, the Ingenium career networking programme, and the Research Funding services at TU Darmstadt. On this site you will find further information on all our programmes and services tailored especially to postdoctoral researchers.
