Information on Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz (the German law concerning academic fixed-term contract)

GC_Logo_rgb_blau-blauThe Göttingen Campus Postdoc Committee signed the Joint Statement from German Postdoctoral Networks on the BMBF paper about the WISSZEITVG (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, the German law concerning academic fixed-term contracts): The Committee also had a useful discussion with the Director of HR at the University to find ways to share understanding about the effects of the current legislation on researchers. You are welcome to link up with Committee members if you wish to give them your input. In addition, to help researchers understand WissZeitVG and the proposed updates better, the German Scholars Organization (GSO) has just published WissZeitVG in a nutshell in its Facts and Tools section, with a summary of discussion and links to info in English and German.
