Programme to promote young women researchers

The BGHS welcome nine young researchers from all over Germany to its programme Shortcuts in Winter Term 2017/18. These young women researchers have just completed their Master's degrees. In a four-month programme, they will be qualified to prepare for their doctoral studies. Five of the young women researchers also receive a four-month scholarship to prepare their dissertation at BGHS.

Shortcuts comprises workshops that answer fundamental questions about doctoral studies as well as support in writing a doctoral proposal. Further elements of the programme include a colloquium that offers professional support and regular exchange with others young women researchers planning to begin their dissertations.

The programme is a joint collaboration of BGHS, the Faculty of Sociology, and the Department of History of the Faculty of History, Philosophy and Theology. Dr. Uschi Baaken, Bielefeld University's Equal Opportunity Officer, supports the efforts made by the BGHS to help women enter the academic world through Shortcuts. The programme has pilot character, since Bielefeld University stresses the importance of equal opportunity. Women in academia need support, since women are still underrepresented at all levels of research careers.

The Shortcuts-Programme will run from September to December 2017.
