FAU Postdoc Day
Invitation to the first FAU Postdoc Day
Date and registration
The FAU Postdoc Day is to be held online on 18 July 2022.
You should register via StudOn.
FAU is organising the FAU Postdoc Day again. All postdoctoral researchers at FAU are invited to join.
With the motto ‘Diverse Career Paths for Postdocs’, the event will address the factors that are decisive for different academic and non-academic careers, provide insights into the appointment interview that usually takes place behind closed doors and discuss options to reconcile career and family.
The purpose of the event is to provide you with some ideas for planning your academic or non-academic career, to show you what support FAU provides for postdoctoral researchers and to offer a forum for exchanging ideas and information.
Gain some input and ideas for your path to success during presentations and discussions, get in touch with experts from FAU and talk to professors who have already been appointed.
The FAU Postdoc Day is aimed at postdoctoral researchers who have already gained their doctoral degrees up to and including habilitation/W1 professorship level.
