Individual coaching sessions

Individual coaching

The University of Oldenburg offers individual coaching by qualified coaches to junior professors, junior research group leaders and tenure track professors as well as other academic researchers with a doctorate during the run-up to the birth or adoption of a child, as well as shortly before and for several months after their return to work. The coaching sessions mostly focus on the topics of time and conflict management or resilience.

Target group: The target group is limited to early-career postdoctoral academic staff in temporary employment who are still pursuing further academic qualifications (junior and tenure-track professors, junior research group leaders, postdoctoral candidates seeking a Habilitation, and holders of qualification positions (FWN positions)).

Scope: As needed, up to 6 appointments of 60 minutes each.

Costs: The costs are borne by the responsible unit of the university (Graduate Academy or Professional development/organizational development (PEOE), see below). Any travel costs incurred are borne by the participants themselves.

Application:   Academics wishing to apply should inform the responsible unit of the university (Graduate Academy or Professional development/organizational development (PEOE), see below) informally by post or email, including confirmation of their employment status by their superiors, if applicable. The unit concerned will put the applicant in contact with a coach. The academics may then make the appointments themselves.

Subject to the availability of sufficient funds, the applications will be processed in the order in which they are received.

The applicant will be informed of the decision by the Graduate Academy.

Appointments: At any time, according to individual needs.

Evaluation:After the coaching process, the participants will be asked for brief feedback that will be used to evaluate the coaching.
