Research and Career

What comes after your doctoral thesis? What are the career paths open to scholars of the humanities and which skills are needed for them? Do you want to work in academia, or would you prefer a job in the non-academic labour market? The BGHS helps its doctoral researchers find the answers best suited to their personal situation.

On our website you will find useful information on continuing an academic career and on career planning and further qualification courses.
