Münster Centre for Emerging Researchers (CERes)

Welcome to the website of the Münster Centre for Emerging Researchers (CERes). In 2023, the former WWU Graduate Centre became a research centre. As such, we continue to accompany you as an internal academy, dear doctoral researchers and postdocs, on the paths you take in your training. In close proximity to research, as well as working closely with the faculties – and also with a view to a variety of career paths – we contribute to a research culture which lives up to its responsibilities to society, makes emerging researchers strong and raises their visibility.

The academic world in focus

A researcher in a 28% position and an on-site project evaluation with VR glasses – sounds grotesque? Well, it is. In the satire film Weitermachen Sanssouci (2019) director Max Linz dissects the structures and absurdities of our university system. Together the PhD Representatives, the Postdoc Network and Münster CERes invite you to the Kurbelkiste on May 2nd at 5 p.m. (free admission, English subtitles). The film screening is followed by a talk with filmmaker and lecturer Max Linz.

Unwritten rules, unspoken expectations, unofficial standards, hidden messages – some call it the “hidden curriculum” or implicit knowledge. We bare all!
