Junior Researcher Development Programme

In October 2017 Aarhus University launches a new initiative focusing on junior researchers at AU and their career possibilities. The initiative includes a junior researcher development programme with courses to support the professional development of the individual researcher, career counselling, a website, which will offer information on services for junior researchers, and the initiation of a junior researcher association.

This page is a temporary site where you can see the courses that are part of the Junior Researcher Development Programme. The courses are arranged in 4 different vocational tracks: Industry & Entrepreneurship, Research Leadership, Teaching and Supervision and an Invidual track.

Below you can see the course overview in each track and you can read a description of the courses and sign up. The courses are free of charge for junior researchers.

Note that some of the courses run already in September, so sign up as soon as possible.

From October 1st.   this information and much more is to be found on the new website for Junior Researchers.

 

Junior researchers at AU include assistant professors and postdocs on standard and tenure track contracts.
