What's next? Meeting forum for postdocs


The major scope is to create a support network for postdocs at SCC to enable open discussions around a variety of different topics. The core idea is to create a platform for sharing experiences, having more opportunities to discuss scientific and personal career ideas, build collaborations and help people starting their postdoctoral training at SCC. Experts are invited to each session to provide information, answer questions, and spark the discussion.


Monthly round-table meetings on Fridays at 11.30 – 13.00 at BMC B10 if not otherwise stated. Everyone brings own lunch; coffee will be served on a first come first serve basis.
