Job Portals for Doctoral Researchers



The University of Oldenburg supports doctoral researchers in their career planning in multiple ways: on the one hand the Graduate Academy offers workshops and coaching programmes that specifically deal with career planning. These workshops and programms are exclusively open to doctoral and postdoctoral researchers and aim to support career planning both within and outside of academia, and in the decision between the two. The project Innovative Hochschule Jade-Oldenburg! (IHJO!) supports doctoral researchers aiming to work in the non-academic sector in cooperation with the Graduate Academy with the help of a rich collection of events.

The Department for Research and Technology Transfer offers individual information and advice related to funding possibilities. For doctoral candidates there is information on university and other funding sources (specifically related to financing the PhD) as well as the relevant contact information.

Our Doctoral Candidate Counselling at the Study and Career Counseling Service supports (prospective) doctoral candidates during transitions between stages of their academic and professional career (PhD/PostDoc/entry level jobs). We work with PhD candidates to clarify professional goals, to develop career options and to answer questions on how to start a career inside and outside of academia. The annual CareerDay of the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg offers information on companies and networking opportunities for future professionals and leaders.

The Founding and Innovation Center (GIZ) offers support in case you consider founding your own company based on your scientific insights.

The current job offers of the University Oldenburg can be found on the university's website.
