TU Berlin Center for Junior Scholars (TUB-CJS)

Conditions of participation

The proMotion training program is oriented toward all female junior scholars pursuing a doctorate at TU Berlin. Female doctoral researcher from all faculties and academic chairs are welcome to participate.

We would like the participants of the programme to have already started working on their doctorate. Therefore, teaching/research associates (Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterinnen) are required to register with their faculty in order to participate. To register, you must submit a declaration of intent to pursue a doctorate to the Doctoral Office of your faculty.

However, if you have not yet registered by the application deadline, you can submit the registration later. In this case, send us a copy of the application for registration or write to us in an informal letter why you have not yet been able to register and by when you can register.

All other doctoral researchers must enroll in order to participate in the program.

The program is particularly intended for participants who are in the initial phase/mid-point of their doctorate. The program content is likewise geared toward these phases. However, other participants can be accepted if space allows. The programme is open to doctoral candidates of all nationalities. If demand exceeds the available places, international doctoral candidates have priority over German doctoral candidates for participation in the English-language programme.

Selection criteria:

When selecting participants, we focus on equal representation from all TU Berlin faculties and applicants’ statements of motivation. Social criteria are taken into consideration. Please use our template for your statement of motivation and upload it to the registration form:
