Where can I publish job advertisements?

/femconsult is used to address job advertisements und inquiries specifically to women scientists who might be interested. Through the research function (only via the German website), you can search our database for women scientists with the necessary qualifications. If your research is successful, upload your job advertisement documents to our system and send them directly to the scientists with a short message.

It isn't possible to simply publish advertisements in /femconsult, as is usual in job boards.

If you are not able to find a suitable woman scientist in our database, we recommend distributing your job advertisement or inquiry via specific networks. We have compiled the most important networks for you here (only available in German). We accept job offers in the field of women's and gender studies in our CEWS job market (only in German), regardless of  the required qualifications. Send an e-mail to cews-info(at)gesis(dot)org.

Can I find women research assistants?

No. The main objective of the database is the placement of highly qualified women in professorships.

If you would like to distribute vacancies for scientific staff, we recommend using relevant networks. In the category information (only available in German) you will find
