Postdocs | Networking
Well connected during your postdoc
Personal and professional networks are an important career factor – both in academia and beyond: An idea for an innovative research project or a new methodological approach quite often emerges from exchanging knowledge and experience in formal or informal networks. At the same time, networks can serve as a stepping stone for your further professional development.
On this page, you will find an overview of subject-related networks for postdocs at the UDE and events that enable you to network across disciplines.
Subject-related networks at the UDE
This informal exchange format was launched during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our virtual coffee sessions provide UDE postdocs with an open place to share experiences and connect with peers.
Get in touch with your peers from our three UA Ruhr universities and international postdocs. An expert talk or a panel discussion will provide valuable inputs on career-relevant topics.
What are the next steps after the Postdoc phase? What career options do I have as a postdoctoral researcher? Which funding program would be suitable for my next research project? The Karriereforum for postdocs is all about your individual career planning.
Global Young Faculty
Global Young Faculty (GYF) brings together outstanding, committed postdocs from the Ruhr area to work together on interdisciplinary topics. The network is an initiative of the Mercator Foundation in cooperation with the University Alliance Ruhr and is coordinated by the Mercator Research Center (MERCUR).
