The second roundtable discussion organized by the Equal Opportunities committee within the series “Pursuing an academic career in Germany” is dedicated to “Structures of German academia after the PhD”. Options of planning and pursuing an academic career as well as career management will be addressed from different angles. Topics, such as the sense and purpose of a postdoctoral qualification as well as different paths to the habilitation and professorship will be discussed. The speakers will also present and discuss possibilities of external funding during early stages of career, and the model of a research group leader as a qualification alternative to the habilitation. The discussion and exchange of experiences will not be restricted to German scholars and graduate students, but will also address the possibilities of international researchers who want to establish themselves in German academia.
