In the years following the successful PhD, the research profile already acquired is sharpened and deepened, and strategic goals for further career steps within and outside of academia are identified. The Film University supports staff members also in this phase of their academic career.

Within the framework of the Graduate Academy, we offer PhD graduates services specifically tailored to this qualification phase, such as coaching and mentoring programs. PhD graduates also benefit from events organized by the Graduate Academy in cooperation with the Postdoc Network Brandenburg, the Brandenburg Center for Media Studies, the Potsdam Graduate School of the University of Potsdam, the Netzwerk Studienqualität Brandenburg, and the Dahlem Research School of Freie Universität Berlin.
