Peer Coaching Programme 3 "Making a Career after the Postdoc" - "Leadership Competence & Supervising Doctoral Researchers"

To master all demands required of a postdoc or a group leader while keeping time for creative research  projects it is important to manage yourself and lead your research group in an appropriate way. The workshop presents fundamental knowledge and efficient methods for effective management. While the presented management approach is generally applicable, the focus of the seminar is on environments in science and research.
