Our Mission

The Leibniz PostDoc Network was founded to provide a communication platform for all postdoctoral researchers in the Leibniz Association, thereby giving them a distinctive and united voice.

The most sensitive stage in a researcher’s career is the one following the completion of the PhD. In this phase, researchers face a multitude of challenges in their professional and private lives. They usually pursue additional research, training, or teaching in order to improve the skills required in academia or industry.

Therefore, the overall aims of the network are:

  • Fostering and support of postdocs in their career development and
  • Advocating shared values and improving the scientific culture.
