Skills and Placement


The BERA Area Skills and Placement supports Associates in acquiring further skills necessary to pursue their careers and supports them when going to the job market. Associates have access to skills programs, some offered by BERA Institutions and others organized by the Area Skills and Placement. By choosing specific offers from the set of available programs Associates can focus on acquiring skills required for their envisioned career path. Skills programs include, e.g., academic writing, publication strategies, teaching techniques, and presentation skills. A special emphasis is placed on supporting the careers of female Associates. Moreover, Associates are supported when going to the job market through preparatory meetings, mock presentations and placement activities.


The director of the BERA Area Skills and Placement is Steffen Huck (WZB and University College London).
