Highlights of PostDoc Retreat 2018 include

-          opportunity to present your work

→     Best abstracts will be selected for a talk.

→     Every poster session will start with a series of flash talks (1 min/1 slide) from all presenters of the session giving you the unique opportunity to draw attention to your poster.

-          chance to network and socialise with your fellow PostDocs

-          Workshop on “Dealing with Stress”

We strongly believe that the participation of all the attendees is what makes the retreat an excellent occasion for having scientific exchange and getting new ideas.

All participants are therefore requested to contribute scientifically with a poster and a flash talk. You can also submit your abstract to be considered for a talk. Out of all applications for talks, 6 abstracts will be selected.

PostDocs who just started can also present their project with a poster and have the unique possibility to have feedback, ideas and scientific inputs from the other post docs present at the retreat.

Abstract submission deadline is October 5th, 2018.

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.


Save the date for the DKFZ Career Day on Entrepreneurship and Biotech, which will take place on 7th December 2018 at the DKFZ Communication Center! For more information click here.
