Blog: resources to navigate an academic career

As part of a workshop retreat of the graduate school of the DPZ in Goettingen, I gave a presentation on my experiences of navigating life in academia after the PhD. I am posting the slides here, and will try to convert them into a blogpost.

I have listed additional resources on my main website (including a link to >200 funders for independent postdoc positions). Here are some more links to information provided by others:
