Facilitation: Dr Matthias Schwarzkopf & Dr Matthias Zach
I had many different jobs in my life: science management, teaching, taking care of recruitment processes of professors, trainer for Teaching in Higher education …
Since 2009 I work as a coach for scientists and counsel them for their careers, but also for self-organization, leadership skills and didactics. I founded career counselling for academics along with some colleagues.
Ask me about career paths in and outside of academia, application, job interviews …
As a trainer, facilitator and coach, I support researchers and scientists with all relevant aspects of their careers. Thanks to my education and work experience in several countries and fields, I particularly enjoy assisting others in translating their knowledge and skills into new contexts.
Ask me about written and oral communication in academia and beyond; written applications and job interviews; national and international careers; translation and translators.

My profession: Public Engagement Professional. Head of the Berlin School of Public Engagement. I am especially interested in science communication and engagement strategy, policy, and research, and how it relates to shaping research culture.
Ask me about: What is a ‘research adjacent’ career? What does a career in science communication or public engagement look like? Is it worth doing a postgraduate course in sci comm? How far can a career in this area take me? Is it rewarding? Is it fun?
Get in touch with the experts: In small groups, you have the opportunity to directly ask the experts your questions and to get into conversation with them. After each discussion round (approx. 15 minutes), you switch tables so that you can talk to every expert.
