About Us

The HMGU Career Center Team has extensive knowledge of career development, the challenges of a scientific career, career opportunities and career paths in industry and application processes, as well as curating and producing relevant content for supporting your individual career development.

The team is comprised of four people:

From left to right: Alice, Meike, Nicola, Angela

  • Dr. Alice Edler - Head of the Career Center
  • Dr. Nicola Bauer - Coach & Trainer
  • Meike Rottermann - Coach & Trainer
  • Angela Hoffmann - Assistant

Together, we aspire to empower and support HMGU's young scientists to determine what their ideal career path is. We do this not only through individual coaching sessions, but also by

  • designing and carrying out meaningful workshops,
  • inviting former peers and other successful researchers to give inspiring career talks and insights into their chosen path, and
  • planning other short formats (i.e. webinars on how to build your personal brand or how to network on LinkedIn).

Using our collective knowledge and skills, combined with quality assurance measures and your feedback, we want to support you as best we can, in navigating your future!
