Career development is a journey. Wherever you are in the process, the HMGU Career Center offers you a wide range of services, ranging from fascinating career talks, inspiring workshops and valuable resources, to individual coaching sessions and advice on orientation and application processes.

  • The HMGU's Career Center is the central contact point for career guidance and coaching for all HMGU Postdocs and Doctoral Students.

  • With our Individual Career Development Plan (IDP), we will be able to support you in gaining a clear picture not only of your personal strengths, values, interests, but also of potential careers open to you.

This section will provide you with more information on our different types of one-on-one coaching sessions (what they entail, booking a session, cancellation policy), the Individual Career Development Plan (IDP), and also the different potential career paths open to young scientists.

For a calendar overview on our past, current and upcoming events, as well as what the HR Development Department has on offer for young scientists, this is the right place for you. We also give a definition on the different types of events (career talks, workshops, etc.) we have on offer, so that you can see what fits you and your schedule best.

There are many different places within the HMGU community, where young scientists can receive different types of information and help. These range from the HELENA Graduate School and the Postdoc Coordination, over the different Ombudspersons, various counselling offices (health, psycho-social) and lastly to the HR Department and the Third-Party Funding Department.

This is the place to find more information on the Career Center itself (team and contact), as well as how it is funded and its organisation within HMGU. This section also contains several FAQs and a possibility for you to suggest topics that are relevant for you and your future career development (Topic Wishlist).

When: 25 January 2022, from 1:00 - 2:30pm

Where: online (registration here)

Chair: Meike Rottermann

The Helmholtz Munich Career Center invites you to the Online Alumni Career Talk “Insights into a Career Path from (Bio-) Chemistry to Regulatory Affairs in the Health-Tech Start-Up Sector” with Moritz Ludwig.

Moritz Ludwig spent his time as a PhD researcher in the Institute for Molecular Toxicology and Pharmacology at Helmholtz Munich before venturing into Regulatory Affairs. Upon completion of his PhD, Moritz switched to a career outside of academia, initially working for a large international company, Henry Schein, as a Regulatory Affairs Specialist. He now works as a Quality and Regulatory Affairs Manager for Kranus Health, a young German start-up in the health-tech sector.

Amongst others, Moritz will give insights into

  • the application phase starting a career in Regulatory Affairs with a background in (bio-) chemistry,
  • the differences between working for a large company and a start-up,
  • working in Regulatory Affairs, and
  • his experiences in the health-tech start-up sector.

We are looking forward to an informative and inspiring discussion with your former peer Moritz! Followed by a Q&A session.
