Call for applications to join the Göttingen Campus Postdoc Committee

GÖTTINGEN CAMPUS POSTDOC COMMITTEE – call for applications for the Committee

It’s time for our regular recruitment drive for the group that drives this Network! Are you interested in making a difference for the Postdoc Community in Göttingen? Would you like to share your concerns, ideas and experiences with the other postdocs of the Göttingen Campus? Our friendly committee – run by Postdocs for Postdocs – is looking for new members to help improve the Postdoc experience across the Campus. The main work is to contribute to meetings which last for one hour once a month on Zoom. Apart from turning up to meetings, tasks include bringing ideas and text for the newsletter, ideas for events, and highlighting the most important themes (such as parenting or careers) so that the committee can focus its attention on it. The workload is minimal and flexible and can be tailored to your personal interests and skills. The benefits and work involved are explained here (on the right of the page) and applications are in the form of a short letter and CV. You can find out more about the GC Postdoc Network here. The Postdoc Coordinator, Melissa Sollich (International Communications in the Press Office), is happy to answer any questions that you have. And of course feel free to talk informally with current members of the committeeDeadline: 30 September 2021

All applications from postdocs are welcome and we are looking forward to hearing from you!

As we try to balance the membership of the committee to have broad representation for postdocs across the Campus, applications from postdocs with disabilities, postdocs from Germany, the MPIs/other research institutes, or postdoc parents are highly encouraged. We also aim to be broadly representative in terms of gender, discipline, orientation, personal situation, background and current location etc.

Separate from the committee, we welcome suggestions for events, the newsletter or emails from all postdocs on the GC Postdoc Network.

Greetings from Melissa Sollich
