Forschungszentrum Jülich’s Career Center offers early-career scientists and their supervisors comprehensive support in all career-related issues. It is therefore the central contact point for Jülich’s postdocs and provides information on existing services for postdocs. We also conduct various measures for career development, advice, orientation, and networking for postdocs and doctoral researchers – particularly those in the final year of their degree.

Furthermore, we offer support in implementing the Guidelines for Supervising and Supporting Postdocs of Forschungszentrum Jülich, which aim to increase the transparency of any conditions and qualifications needed for your own scientific profile as well as active career planning.

The Career Center works according to the following principle:

Postdocs are highly qualified experts with professional experience and are primarily responsible for their own career planning.

The supervisors of postdocs are their first point of call for personal development.

The Career Center supports postdocs and senior staff in response to their requirements.
