Guide to our services

Doctoral researchers

We offer support, advice and a series of events that will help you organise your research activities at the university and keep you informed about academic and alternative career paths.

Post-doctoral researchers

Whether you've just been accepted for your first post-doctoral position or are in the process of applying for a lifetime professorship, we will help you plan your research activities, career and applications and will continue to provide advice and support as you transition into your first leadership role.


Are you a recently appointed professor at the University of Konstanz? We would be delighted to assist you with your arrival and transition via our "Professur am See" (professorship by the lake) programme. Our professors have access to one-on-one consultation and continuing education opportunities on topics such as leadership, management and supervision. For professors with supervisory or management functions, we provide support with university structures and processes in the areas of human resources development, the advancement of junior researchers and educational development.


In order to further develop and professionalise your teaching competency, we would like to encourage you to take advantage of our information events and advisory services as well as the „Baden-Württemberg-Zertifikat für Hochschuldidaktik“ (Baden Württemberg certificate for university didactics). Furthermore, we advise and assist course coordinators with designing study programmes and modules.
