Improving Society: The Impact of Doctoral Graduates

The work of junior researchers encompasses the intensive immersion into an academic discipline, acquiring expert knowledge in the chosen field of study and developing a wide range of transferable skills. Doctoral candidates are questioning, dissecting, and analyzing a variety of scientific phenomena and developing new ideas and approaches. Often times their ambitious academic projects are driven by the desire to make valuable social, cultural, and economic contributions and drive change in society. 

When transitioning into the job market, however, practical professional decision-making competes with the aspiration to make a sustainable impact.

So, how can doctoral graduates succeed in kick starting their careers in and outside Academia, and simultaneously follow their ambition to make a contribution? What skill set and competences are needed to achieve this endeavor? What roles do universities play when it comes to the impact of junior researchers? How can universities successfully prepare doctorates for social responsibility? And, what skills does Academia traditionally not foster in doctoral graduates in order to negotiate science in a non-scientific domain?

In this panel we will discuss these questions and derive insights and best practice recommendations from three international doctorate graduates working in different fields within the German job market.
