Description

For most researchers, writing well in English is crucial for professional success. While writing in general and writing in English in particular are integral aspects of academic life, many are often unsure about what is considered "good" academic writing or what makes a paper written in English successful.

The writing consultations offer individual feedback to postdoctoral researchers to support them effectively in the writing process. The overall goal is to help non-native speakers produce texts that follow the linguistic and stylistic conventions distinct to Anglophone academic writing.

Consultees are expected to submit excerpts (max. 5 pages) from their writing three workdays ahead of the appointment, which are then discussed in detail with the writing consultant. Together, we will try to identify typical errors and develop strategies to improve your writing.

Target Audience

Postdocs, academic staff, juniorprofessors
