Gender equality

Women in our SFB/TRR219

Within our consortium, female researchers are represented on different levels of project preparation,

scientific management as well as in the scientific partnership as scientific project leaders, with currently 26% of women among the principal investigators and with 7 of 17 projects (41%) headed or co-headed by a female leader.

Since the resulting percentage of male and female leaders is still unbalanced at this stage, we will take all possible measures to further elevate the percentage of female researchers in our consortium.

 

Specific measures to promote gender equality

  • Female Advisory Mentoring Panel” to offer advice to female doctoral students aiming for an academic career

  • Mentoring courses for female scientists offering a range of workshops and seminars focusing on the participation of women in academia by strategically promoting the career development of excellent female doctoral, postdoctoral and habilitating scientists through professional coaching

  • Research management courses and networking.

  • Financial support to facilitate research careers of female investigators and young families

  • Flexible and family-friendly work schedules, part-time employment and support for returning to work after maternity leave, to facilitate the balance of work and family
