Taking-off from the CRC 1199: Career experiences in Germany and Abroad

With Diana Ayeh (UFZ, Leipzig) & Michaela Böhme (DCZ, Beijing)


Academic careers are far from over just because someone leaves a collaborative research centre for non-university job opportunities. The CRC 1199 is always proud to report that its former members entered fields of expertise that are not only academically related but strongly rely on the knowledge, interdisciplinary outlook and soft skills gained in it.

Thus, in looking forward to a multiplicity of future employment options beyond the CRC 1199, we are glad that two of our former colleagues, Diana Ayeh and Michaela Böhme, agreed to share their personal insights with us and to exchange about their career experiences in a get-together of deliberately informal character. 

In order to prepare sufficient amounts of coffee and snacks, please give us a short confirmation of your participation via sfb1199[at]uni-leipzig.de.
