Postdoc Appreciation Week has been celebrated in Great Britain and the USA for 13 years to put postdocs in the spotlight. This year, the Munich Postdoc Network and the University of Hannover have joined forces to establish Postdoc Appreciation Week in Germany. It is based on the firm conviction that postdocs in Germany also deserve more attention, visibility and support given their key role in the German science system - and their difficult working conditions/career prospects.
Institutions, networks, organisations and individuals support the Postdoc Appreciation Week and offer special events for postdocs during the celebration week. The programme includes nearly 70 virtual and in-person events taking place this week. Most of these events are open events that postdocs from all institutions can attend (whether your institution organises an event or not).
For events with a limited number of participants, please make sure that you are able and willing to participate before you register, as there might be many other interested parties.
The respective institutions, networks and organisations are responsible for the content and registration. If you are a postdoc and have questions about a particular event, please contact the organiser/host directly.
The programme intended for postdocs throughout Germany can be found here.
