Networking and Events

CUI’s networking  events offer a great opportunity to network with other female scientists and to openly discuss various topics focussed on careers in science. They are open to scientist on all career levels. CUI cooperates regularly with several partners in order to foster networks and  and interdisciplinary scientific exchange on and beyond campus.

Ladies Lunchtalk

Good food, interesting discussions and great networking: In cooperation with EMBL, CUI organizes these campus-wide lunchtalks that focus on different topics related to careers in science. The lunchtalks take place on the campus in Bahrenfeld and are open for all scientists.

Lunchtalk No. 1:

“Making it but (sometimes) Faking It?!?” The Impostor Syndrome in Scientific Careers


20th Women in Physics Conference

What are current questions in research? What are women physicists investigating? Are the strategies for the promotion of women still up to date? The 20th Women in Physics Conference, where female physicists from all career levels met on Campus Bahrenfeld, was marked by scientific and sociopolitical discussions. Together with the Department of Physics at Universität Hamburg, CUI had organized the 20. Deutsche Physikerinnentagung (DPT) from 3 – 6 November 2016  in Hamburg. The DPT is an annual conference of the German Physical Society (Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, DPG) and its working group for equal opportunities (Arbeitskreis Chancengleichheit, AKC).

Pro Exzellenzia meets UNI HH

Please note: this event is held in german

Zusammen mit dem hamburgweiten Programm „Pro Exzellenzia – Für mehr Frauen in Führung “ veranstaltet CUI in Kooperation mit der Stabsstelle Gleichstellung, CliSAP und der MIN-Fakultät die Veranstaltungsreihe  „Nachhaltigkeit von wissenschaftlichen Karrierewegen“. In den Lunchmeetings jeweils von 12.30 bis 14.00 Uhr gibt es für Hochschulabsolventinnen, Postdoktorandinnen und Doktorandinnen der Exzellenzcluster und aus dem MINT- Bereich die Möglichkeit zum Austausch untereinander und vor allem Inputs von hochkarätigen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Trainerinnen.

Das Thema der nächsten Veranstaltung am Campus Bahrenfeld:

“Pro Exzellenzia meets CUI: Kreuzung oder Einbahnstraße? Karriere, was kann das sein?”

Die Definition von Karriere scheint eindeutig: steil nach oben. Gibt es daneben aber auch alternative Definitionen und Wege “Karriere” zu denken und auch zu machen? Neben der Vorstellung von unterschiedlichen Karrierewegen in Wissenschaft, Verwaltung, Politik und Wissenschaftsmanagement gibt es Input durch einen Karrierecoach und die Möglichkeit zum individuellen Austausch mit Gästen und Teilnehmerinnen

(Termin wird in Kürze bekanntgegeben)
