Who? Postdocs from all institutes of the Leibniz Association
When? 23-24October, 2019
Where? GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Unter Sachsenhausen 6-8, 50667 Cologne

The Leibniz PostDoc Network invites postdoc representatives and other interested postdocs from all Leibniz Institutes to attend the 3rd Annual Meeting. During the meeting, we will introduce the Leibniz PostDoc Network to you and discuss what we have achieved so far, what we are still working on, and what we plan for the future. We will also have an impulse lecture on open science.

The PostDoc Network is built on your ideas, needs, and contributions. We invite you to actively shape the network with us by identifying “hot” topics and developing strategies to reach our goals. You will also have the chance to elect a new steering committee with spokespersons, sections officers (representatives for each Leibniz Section) and working group leaders to operate the Leibniz PostDoc Network during the upcoming year.
