The University of Tübingen supports its academics with diverse offers that are tailored to the needs of researchers in all career phases. The researcher development's goal is to strengthen scientists both in their core tasks in teaching, research and the academic self-administration as well as in their professional development.
The University of Tübingen understands academic human resources development as a process that also considers changing conditions for the implementation and further development of the university's strategic goals. The personnel development concept (PEK) defines fields of action, standards and measures for this purpose, which are to be continuously evaluated and developed in the coming years.
The University of Tübingen has been participating in the EU Commission's Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) initiative since 2017 and was one of the first German univeristies to do so. The audit's aim is the full implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers recommendations. The university's action plan was successfully adopted in 2019.
The University Association for the Qualification of Young Academics in Germany (UniWiND) is a network of currently 75 member institutions which have made the promotion of young academics one of their universities' focal tasks. UniWiND is committed to optimizing training conditions for doctoral students and early career researchers at the beginning of their postdoctoral phase in order to give them the best possible opportunities for future careers in and out out of university.
The nationwide network for HR development at universities (UniNetzPE) is the next decisive step towards a systematic professionalization and establishment of HR development at universities.
