Early Career & Equal Opportunity
The portfolio Early Career & Equal Opportunity, EC & EO, of the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence focuses on the support of early career scholars in academic and administrative matters and helps doctoral and postdoctoral fellows to navigate the complex aspects of professional development with a perspective on individual career progression.
The Vice Dean EC & EO directs the portfolio and acts at the same time for the Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies, BIGSAS, as Spokesperson in close cooperation with the Deputy Spokesperson.
In consultation with the Vice Dean of Research, the portfolio EC & EO implements best practices in the professional guidance of scholars on their career pathway and thus complements research- and competence training for the doctoral fellows, postdocs, and junior research group leaders who are based in the Academy.
The academic coordinator of EC & EO and the coordinator of BIGSAS support the strategic agenda and vision.
