Postdoc Meeting

This year’s postdoc meeting will come in two parts:

We will start with a ‘growing up in science’ session (see also the original series here) for which we invited Rosanne Rademaker, who started her Max Planck Research Group at the Ernst-Strüngmann Institute in Frankfurt last year. She will talk about the struggles, doubts, failures and detours of becoming a scientist that are usually not listed in a CV. We invite you to join the discussion on related topics from mentorship, anti-racism to work-life balance.

In the second part we move on to the problem of fixed-term contracts in academia, which was recently discussed on Twitter under #ichbinhanna (click here for more information) in Germany. We are curious to hear about the problem and its solutions in different countries. We would like to invite you to join the open discussion round on that topic. Bring your related questions, problems and comments along, and don’t be shy to ask. It will be a relaxed atmosphere.
