    Vom 26. bis zum 27. November 2018 fand in Münster die internationale Tagung „Women in Science“ in den Räumlichkeiten des Max-Planck-Instituts statt. Die Wissenschaftlerinnen trafen sich, um über Karrierewege innerhalb und außerhalb der Wissenschaft zu diskutieren sowie sich über ihre aktuelle Forschung auszutauschen. In dieser Form fand die Konferenz zum ersten Mal statt.

    Über 100 Teilnehmerinnen informierten sich bei der von Medizinischer Fakultät und mehreren Sonderforschungsbereichen organisierten und unterstützten Konferenz zu den Themen Karriereplanung, Karriereoptionen und interdisziplinäre Netzwerkbildung. Auch hochklassige fachwissenschaftliche Vorträge und Poster-Präsentationen aus den Bereichen Medizin und Lebenswissenschaften kamen nicht zu kurz. Begrüßt wurden die Teilnehmerinnen an der WWU und in der Stadt Münster von Forschungsprorektorin Prof. Dr. Monika Stoll und Bürgermeisterin Wendela-Beate Vilhjalmsson.

    „Als bereits etablierte Wissenschaftlerinnen möchten wir dem talentierten jungen weiblichen Nachwuchs vor allem eine besondere Plattform zum Netzwerken und zum Austauschen bieten“ erklären Prof. Dr. Karin Loser und Prof. Dr. Ursula Rescher vom Organisatorinnen-Team. „Um hochkarätige internationale Referentinnen einladen zu können, haben wir um Unterstützung mehrerer Sonderforschungsbereiche und Forschungsverbünde in Deutschland gebeten. Nun ist die Tagung bis auf den letzten Platz ausgebucht und wir konnten dank unseres Netzwerks mittels sogenanntem Gendermittel-Pooling diese Tagung verwirklichen“ stellen beide zu Beginn des Kongresses heraus.

    Das sogenannte Gendermittel-Pooling ist eine Möglichkeit, im Rahmen DFG-geförderter Projekte zur Verfügung stehende Finanzen zum Zwecke der Realisierung größerer Maßnahmen zu bündeln.

    „Für den Standort Münster und die eng verzahnten Bereiche Medizin und Lebenswissenschaften hat die Tagung einen hohen Stellenwert. Wir sind stolz darauf, dass unsere Kolleginnen diese standortübergreifende Initiative umgesetzt und bewiesen haben, dass wir uns diesem aktuellen Thema nicht nur mit Worten, sondern auch mit Taten widmen“ heben Forschungsdekan der Medizinischen Fakultät Prof. Sven Meuth sowie seine Kollegen aus zwei der beteiligten Sonderforschungsbereiche, Prof. Dr. Christian Klämbt und Prof. Dr. Johannes Roth, gemeinsam mit dem Koordinator des Exzellenz-Clusters „Cells in Motion“, Prof. Dr. Volker Gerke, und dem IZKF-Vorsitzenden Prof. Dr. Stephan Ludwig, hervor.

    Workshop “Networking for female academics“ for female researchers

    March 07th, 2016The possibilities to make quick and target focused contact with experts, colleagues, potential employers and staff members, funders and business partners have increased in number and significance. In the light of growing complexity in the knowledge society and better electronic contact possibilities, the ‘know-who’ is gaining in importance next to the ‘know-how’. In the academic sector, as elsewhere, personal contacts enhance the chances of finding supporters and funders for one’s own project, of receiving conference invitations, of being involved in publications, and of being told about interesting positions. Networking requires initiative and continued investment. It is helpful, in this context, to be able to rely on proven strategies to make the right contacts, to communicate in a target focused way and to find the balance between giving and taking. The workshop transmits these proven networking techniques.Sanja Stevic, GOLIN WissenschaftsmanagementDownloads: Detailed information  |  Application templateRegistration: Female researchers from all labs of SFB 656, CiM and SFB 1009 can apply by sending the completed application template to Dr. Eva Lorentzen (sfbmobil@uni-muenster.de) until 29.02.2016 (first come, first served).


    Workshop “Conflict Management in Academia“ for female researchers

    February 09th, 2016

    Conflicts are unavoidable in the normal course of the working life, in academia as well as
    outside. Whether it is about subject specific differences, competition amongst colleagues or
    disagreements with the supervisor or boss – there are plenty of potentially explosive situations.
    But it does not have to come to a detonation which damages the atmosphere in the long run!

    This workshop conveys fundamental knowledge about dealing with conflict and trains the
    powers of observations as well as negotiation skills. The participants learn to better judge the
    impact of their behaviour and to develop strategies for solving conflicts.

    January 18th - 19th, 2016In science exist a great variety of career possibilities nationally and internationally. They
    cover the whole range from universities, research institutions and administrations to
    industry and entrepreneurship. What do I want? Which way should I go? Should I go abroad
    or not? Which alternatives do I have? Which strategies can I use? Which support do I have to
    combine family life with research? How can I develop my career goal oriented?Dr. Wilma Simoleit, Förderungsberatung, Bonn
