I have been a postdoc in Computer Science at a German university for the last year or so. Previously, I have been a postdoc abroad for another couple of years, and I also hold a PhD from abroad.
When I took up this post, I and my current superior signed a Habilitation clause in the 3+3 contract (this shows intent to do a Habilitation at the time of signing the contract, but it is not a necessity if both I and my superior agree not to do one).
In my current state, I am not really growing as an Academic. My superior only does administration, so I look after his BSc and MSc students and do also a bunch of teaching, but as you can imagine, I do not take any credit for the supervision of students.
I wonder if going for a Habilitation will allow me to get credit for supervising students and also allow me to do my own teaching, so that I can further build my CV and actually show some progress.
Thank you all.
