The Jenny Aloni Center for Early Career Researchers brings together the management of all graduate centres of the five faculties and the coordinators of all research training groups in the institutional members' working group. The working group's aim is to closely coordinate the needs of the institutions with the Jenny Aloni Center for Early Career Researchers and to develop customised support services at an early stage.
The working group "Services" brings together the various support sevices within Paderborn University that provide services for researchers in the early stages of their careers. The aim is to promote the networking of institutions and cooperation partners within Paderborn University, to make better use of internal competences, and to jointly provide attractive offers for doctoral candidates, postdocs, and junior professors.
Jewish writer Jenny Aloni (1917-1993) lived in Paderborn until 1935. She emigrated to Palestine at the end of 1939 and published poems, novels, and stories from the 1950s onwards, in which she repeatedly dealt with persecution, feelings of uprootedness, and guilt. She was considered the most important German-language writer of her generation in Israel.
