Women in Science
Despite significant progress in recent decades, women in leadership and decision-making positions compared to their male colleagues are still under-represented, and rarely invited as speakers and cited in reputable journals. This also applies to biomedical research. But there are, the numerous scientists, from PhD students to professors.
Visibility of Women Scientists
Here we show portraits of inspiring women scientists and invite you to events that address the lack of representation of women. An overview with databases of female scientists from different disciplines enables you to find suitable speakers or future colleagues.
Career Service for Women Scientists
Workshops and Networking
BIH is committed to equal opportunities in the scientific and academic workplace. The "female career@BIH" program offers various workshops, professional development trainings and coaching for early- and mid-career women scientists. Workshops include topics such as personal career development, rhetoric and presentation, leadership skills and conflict Management.
All upcoming events are announced on our events page here.
Furthermore BIH wants to promote the research activities of female scientists and clinicians. Mid-career women scientists (postdocs, junior clinical scientists, clinical scientists, junior professors, junior group leaders) from the BIH translational research commons can apply for research support through the BIH Gender Equality Fund and receive funding to hire a student assistant. The deadline for 2019 funding was early November; sign up for our mailing list to hear about future funding opportunities.
