About me

I like self-determined work, having a defined goal in mind and a clear distinction between office times and after-work hours. I passionately support scientists in their application to professorships and other positions both within and outside academia, in optimizing their career plans, in exploring career options beyond the university arena, in the efficient design of their academic life and in dealing with conflictual relationships in the academic world. At schainundkuchenbrandt, I offer seminars, workshops and lectures throughout Germany for universities, graduate schools, mentoring programs, non-university research institutions and other institutions. I also work with scientists during individual consultations and training seminars.
