Welcome & Get-Together Group


Welcome new postdocs and give them useful information about life in Heidelberg & work at DKFZ

Encourage networking & exchange of ideas by organizing monthly get-together events for postdocs from DKFZ & also other institutes in Heidelberg.

If you are interested, please sign up to the PostDoc mailing list ( PDN@dkfz.de ) by emailing Doris, so that you can get the invitation for future get-together events and other relevant information. And please spread the work especially among new postdocs in your group.

Running Group

The running group offers PostDocs the possibility to get to know each other and connect by running together. Runners of every level are welcome to join.

Usually, we choose between alternative tracks along the Neckar or the Philosophenweg and run for about 1 hour. If the group will be large enough and some of the participants favor a shorter track, we will split to a subgroup running for about 40 minutes and a subgroup running the long track.

Meeting point: Thursdays 6:00pm in front of the DKFZ main entrance.

Sign up - Do it!

Contact Person: Stefan Kallenberger, s.kallenberger@dkfz-heidelberg.de, phone: 54-51308, office: BioQuant R. 363

If you want to be included in the mailing list to receive weekly reminders or updates for the next meetups, please write Stefan an email.

We’re looking forward to you joining the meetup!
