As Departmental Coordinator, what are your responsibilities?
In addition to the day-to-day activities of the Departmental Office, the main tasks of the position include optimising the internal processes of the Faculty in the appointment procedures as well as developing and establishing onboarding measures for new professors and employees of the Faculty.
What attracts you most about the new role?
As a Ph.D. student and postdoc, I've taken on administrative tasks alongside research and teaching, and realised just how multi-faceted the work of managing science is. Being able to work with the different status groups at the university while remaining close to research is something I am very much looking forward to.
For the coming year, what are your specific goals and projects?
As the department continues to grow, there is an ever-increasing need to question internal processes. In the coming months, we will be analysing, structuring, and optimising many of them. I am looking forward to contributing to the efficiency of the department's work by developing measures and new concepts.
