Professional-Track Postdocs

With the innovative profile of its professional-track postdoc programme, the EXC TC has established a unique opportunity for postdoc level researchers for forging career paths beyond the university. Over a period of typically two years, professional-track postdocs pursue individual research projects that aim to bridge academic research with outreach-oriented formats. Embedded in the Cluster’s vibrant research context, they collaborate with cultural institutions, curate experimental discursive formats and arts and literary events, and explore intermedial forms of publication and documentation. The pioneering design of the Cluster’s postdoc programme opens up new career prospects for highly qualified researchers, addressing the need to better connect academic research with a wide range of curatorial skills, modes of cultural knowledge production and societal outreach.
