Career paths in the postdoc phase

The Graduate Academy is the central institution for all postdocs at Otto von Guericke University with questions about the scientific career and alternatives to a career in science.

When describing transparent career paths for postdocs, it should be noted that a maximum of 20 % of PhDs in Germany remain in academia, and of these, a maximum of 5 % obtain a professorship. Therefore, it is an important task of the Otto von Guericke University to promote and show other academic and non-academic career paths in addition to the career goal of professorship.

Scientists with a doctorate go through different phases of qualification in the postdoc phase at OVGU.

On our pages you will find information on the conditions of an academic career as well as possible career paths outside the university.

We will be glad to support you in an individual interview.
