Young Leaders in Science 2012-2013

Young Leaders in Science 2012-2013

After the successful completion of three courses, the fourth round of the management training, which consists of five modules, is scheduled to start in May 2012:

May 24-26, 2012

Communication and Conflict Management, Team Leadership and Cooperation, Basics of Science Management

August 23-25, 2012

(Appointment-) Negotiations, Selection of Staff

November 1-3, 2012

Staff Management, Labor and Employment Law

February 3-5, 2013

Media Training, Scientific Misconduct, Time and Self Management

April 2-4, 2013

Project Management and Teambuilding, Financial Management

The course will include a personal mentoring program, i.e. every participant will be individually supported by a senior scientist for the duration of the program.

The course is conducted in German.

In addition to their research and teaching responsibilities, scientists nowadays are increasingly confronted with management tasks. The managerial basics, however, are not taught as part of their university education. To fill this gap, the Schering Stiftung, in cooperation with the Center for Science & Research Management in Speyer, has developed the Young Leaders in Science program.

The program aims to provide young scientists in the natural and life sciences with the communication and management basics necessary to direct their own research group. It thus seeks to facilitate the young scientist’s transition from being a staff member without leadership tasks to becoming a leader with personnel and financial responsibilities. The program provides young leaders with both the knowledge and the necessary instruments to help them meet their responsibilities.

The training modules will take place at ‘Schloss Etelsen’ near Bremen.
