about me

I like self-determined work, having a specific goal in mind and a clear cut between work and free time. I passionately support scientists in their application process for professorship posts and other positions within and outside academia, in the optimization of scientists' career planning, in identifying non-university career options, in the development of efficient working routines as well as in the handling of conflict-ridden relationships within scientific institutions. With schainundkuchenbrandt, I offer nationwide seminars, workshops and lectures for universities, graduated schools, mentoring programmes, non-university research institutes and other institutions. Furthermore, I work together with scientists in the context of individual consultations and training sessions.
