Changed to online!!!

Before booking a workshop, please make sure that you can attend for the entire duration and save the dates. When participants do not show up or cancel on a very short notice, other interested parties are denied a chance to participate.


Target Group

For advanced doctoral candidates of all disciplines.


To provide you with a complete letter of application and a CV in English.


  • Identifying your real strengths – what do you think your strengths are? What do other people think your strengths are – are these the same?
  • Considering the opportunities you have in terms of job and research positions. How much competition will you face if you apply for an advertised job? What about on spec applications? How many jobs are never advertised?
  • Writing a good cover letter. Which font should you use? Why? What about spacing? How important are the start and the end of the letter?
  • Optimizing your CV in English. What are the key differences between an English and a German CV? What is not allowed? Do you need a photo? Should you sign your CV?


If there are free spots, we also allow postdocs to participate.
