The Leibniz-Kolleg creates a platform for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers to discuss their interdisciplinary research, career options and funding opportunities with experienced scholars, career experts and peers.
Interdisciplinarity facilitates to address research topics in a comprehensive way and from diverse angles. Be it climate change, smart industries, effects of globalization or the understanding of historical discourses and narratives – the different angles interdisciplinarity allows for are crucial to pervade, understand and solve complex challenges of our time. At the same time, interdisciplinarity is a challenge in the everyday of researchers: How can I best organise an interdisciplinary project? How does it affect career options? What are the best ways to publish research results? And which funding bodies support which kind of projects? The Leibniz-Kolleg for Young Researchers is addressed to PhD students in their final year and postdoctoral researchers and offers a forum to discuss these issues with experts in- and outside academia, experienced researchers and peers.
