The PDN - Why join?



© PostDoc Network


Susi: „I joined the PDN Committee very soon after I started my postdoc at DKFZ in 09/2019 and became one of the PDN representatives. The PDN has helped my onboarding at DKFZ a lot and I quickly got to know and got in touch with all the different useful institutions here at DKFZ, like the Postdoc Office, Advanced Training, the Equality Office and the Career Service. I met other Postdocs at our Postdoc Retreat and on the Heidelberg Christmas market and not only made new friends this way, but this interaction also resulted in a new collaboration for my lab. Through the committee work it is more easy for me to approach people, and organizing seminars and even big events like the PDN Retreat has become easy for me."

Santiago: "When I started working at the DKFZ in 2018, I found out about the PDN in the website of the DKFZ. Then in 2020 I started actively working on the committee by editing and writing the PDN newsletter. Working in the PDN gives me the opportunity to meet new people and to increase my network, which is essential for our future career path. I also became more aware on how does DKFZ works as an institution and was able to further develop my abilities as project manager. At the personal level, I could make new friends and find the support I needed to be able to perform a postdoc at this institution. So to summarize, it was and still is an enriching experience to be part of the PDN."

Career Days

Career Days are an initiative of the DKFZ PostDoc Network (PDN) supported by the Career Service. The aim is to provide scientists at our institute with insights on different career paths in specific fields. We invite alumni and other (postdoctoral) researchers to briefly share their personal career paths. Afterwards participants have ample time to join round table Q&A sessions.  An information booklet with career profiles and recent job offers are provided to all participants and stay available in our archive.
