TU Berlin Center for Junior Scholars (TUB-CJS)

Continuing education & further qualification for junior scholars

This page provides information on workshops and trainings for doctoral candidates and postdocs. The courses and events listed here are just some of the continuing education offers provided by a range of organizational units at TU Berlin. It is not possible to register via CJS' Office for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Service. Please register directly with the organizer of the event.

Not all courses are open to all doctoral candidates at TU Berlin. Please check carefully to see which are available for you.

The broadest variety of workshops and courses is offered by the Center for Scientific Continuing Education and Cooperation. You will find up to a hundred courses per year, which are free for all scientific employees and registered doctoral candidates of TU Berlin, and possibly all doctoral candidates of the Berlin University Alliance.

The courses offered by the Staff Development and Continuing Education branch of the human ressources department are open to all employees of TU Berlin. START is a program for the next generation of management offering intensive seminars for postdocs and for those commencing a new managerial career in the areas of science and administration.

The Centre for Entrepreneurship has a number of individual offers for doctoral candidates who are interested in marketing a product or setting up their own business.

As a doctoral candidate at TU Berlin you can also, as part of an initiative of the Berlin University Alliance, take advantage of courses offered by the Dahlem Research School (at Freie Universität) and the Humboldt Graduate School (Humboldt Universität) – please follow the links provided and contact the relevant institute about participating in a program:

ZEWK - Overall Programme WiSe 2022/2023

The complete programme of the Centre for Scientific Continuing Education and Cooperation (ZEWK) for the winter semester 2020/2023 is now online. You can also find an overview of all ZEWK courses in English here.

Berlin Graduate Studies Program

The Berlin University Alliance has set itself the goal of improving the conditions for all doctoral students of the four alliance partners. The Excellence Alliance offers all doctoral students of the four partner institutions a comprehensive qualification programme that reflects the different phases of a doctorate. The programme includes five core events and numerous workshops, coaching and mentoring opportunities.

Writing Courses

When it comes to academic writing, it is often not easy to get off to a good start or you lose momentum halfway through.
BUA as well as other institutions, such as the Staatsbibliothek, therefore offer practical help in the form of workshops or virtual meetings.

Mental Health und Selbstmanagement

In order to develop and maintain healthy work and life habits, it is important to focus on personal mental health from time to time, but it is also useful to learn new strategies in self-management.
