Susanne Matuschek

A successful academic career includes the recruited third-party funding as main applicant of funding organizations such as the SNSF. In one coaching session, this Coaching Funding offers the development of a strategy which national funding instruments are best suited for you as a researcher, which timing or which third-party funding cascade makes sense. In addition, you will be given concrete advice when preparing an application or with a «final check» of the application and application documents.

Coaching Funding Advanced Postdocs & Clinical Researchers

The challenges faced by advanced postdocs and clinical researchers have risen successively in recent years, including extensive third-party funding as the main applicant, a stay abroad of a defined duration and the establishment of own a research group with PhD candidates. These topics will be included in Coaching Funding.

You choose one of the three workshop days, the individual coaching sessions will take place within one month afterwards.

Empowerment

In this workshop you will explore the topic of power and self-empowerment with a focus on typical challenges for women when it comes to career and professional issues as well as status and power games. Interactive exercises and guided reflections will present a framework for you to investigate how you manage yourself and different types of working relationships, how others perceive you, and how skilled you are at influencing others. On that basis you will develop new strategies for your personal empowerment and self-leadership.
