Mid-career Researchers The Vice-President`s Board (Research & Faculty) offers trainings, resources and workshops for assistant professors, postdoctoral researchers and permanent lecturers The postdoctoral period as well as the time as an assistant professor often coincide with the so called “rush hour” of life. The independence as a researcher grows, and at the same time, this period is often a time of profiling and orientation in which important career decisions have to be made. On top of this, this period of life is often accompanied by important decisions relating to one' s private and family life. The program of the Vice-President's Board (Research & Faculty) would like to support you regarding questions about research and career-path development and offers a variety of course, workshops and information events. We would like to give you a smooth start at the University of St.Gallen by offering all new assistant professors and postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to attend our "Welcome new Researchers" event. Over the course of an afternoon, we will introduce you to the topics of Faculty, Research and Teaching. Invitations will be sent out by the end of the spring and autumn semester. In addition, the Faculty Development of the University of St.Gallen offers trainings and workshops on topics like appointment procedures, and leadership & management to support your professional career. The Peer Project Grant enables next generation researchers, who are pursuing a career in academia, to realize projects that will facilitate and foster a career in academia. The Centre for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at the University of St.Gallen offers further training and support in the areas of teaching and didactics. The Grants Office St.Gallen offers support in finding the best funding instrument for your research and acts as a first point of contact for all matters relating to research funding.
