PostDoc Retreats

PostDoc Retreat 2021

Dear fellow PostDocs,

we haven't seen each other for a very long time - some of you only joined DKFZ during the past year and we didn't get the chance to get to know you at all. We would like to change that! We are very happy to invite you to our first virtual DKFZ PostDoc Retreat.
We have put together a great program and also left room for your own contribution, so that you get the chance to discuss your work with your peers and get feedback from outside your own department. Moreover, you will also get the opportunity to share your favorite scientific lifehack with your peers in the Sharing is Caring session.
There will be interesting keynotes, you can choose from 2 amazing workshops and attend one of the 6 round tables. Moreover we will have a networking session that you have never experienced like this before.
In addition to the PostDocs from DKFZ & the many DKFZ partner sites, for the first time we will also have PostDoc friends joining from the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon.
