Networks

Make new contacts

Networking is key for doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers. Interdisciplinary and subject-specific networks are just as useful as social ones, and one often leads to the other. We offer plenty of networking opportunities at FAU.

Networking events and programmes at FAU

The ARIADNE mentoring programmes are aimed at talented and ambitious women who are interested in pursuing an academic career. Participants are allocated a suitable mentor, have access to many professional networking opportunities and are able to take part in a variety of events.

Interdisciplinary meet-ups for doctoral candidates

Under the motto of ‘Networking for hungry researchers’, FAU regularly invites doctoral candidates to attend brown bag breaks at the faculties including presentations on academic career planning and speed-networking opportunities. They are a great opportunity to form networks beyond your research project. Use the opportunity to get in touch with young researchers from other countries and share ideas beyond subject and national borders.

The events are part of FAU’s research alumni programme and are managed by M1 Office of Marketing (Alumni Management) and F3 Office of Research Strategy in co-operation with the faculties.

Are you a guest researcher or have you recently joined FAU or Universitätsklinikum Erlangen? Have you moved to the region with your partner? Would you like to get to know the region better and make contacts? Or perhaps have you been living here for a while and would like to help newcomers settle in? Then the Newcomers’ Club at FAU’s Faculty of Medicine (German) is perfect for you.

The career talks on alternative career paths with a doctoral degree which are organised by the Alumni Management, the Career Service and the Graduate Centre at FAU are held once or twice a year, You can find the date of the next talk on Young Academics at FAU, the Graduate Centre’s blog, and you can register for the event free of charge (German).

The speakers, who are all FAU alumni, explain the paths they have taken in careers outside of academia. They are very diverse and often unexpected. The talks are an interesting opportunity for doctoral candidates to learn about the wide range of different professions discussed. They also provide a chance to benefit from the alumni’s experience of topics such as applications, balancing an academic career with family life, and the importance of their doctoral degree for their career in the private sector. After the presentations there is an opportunity for doctoral candidates to talk to the alumni over a drink and a snack.

THESIS e.V. is Germany’s only national interdisciplinary network for all those who are pursuing an academic career.

It is a network of over 600 doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers which organises a wide range of activities.

Network for international doctoral candidates

FAU has been a member of the Scholars at Risk Network (SAR) since the beginning of 2015. The network supports researchers who are put under political pressure, threatened or persecuted because of their research. Further information is available on FAU Integra’s (German) and SAR’s websites.
