Leibniz Postdoc Network

The [link]Leibniz Postdoc Network was founded to provide a communication platform for all postdoctoral researchers in the Leibniz Association, thereby creating a distinguishable and united voice of an important group of researchers.

The overall aims of the network are to: 

  • promote cross-disciplinary exchange between Leibniz postdocs 
    - on a personal and professional level
    - on topics such a career challenges, networking, big data, digitalisation, open science, public outreach, and scientific societal challenges
  • create structures for a central career support, accessible for all Leibniz postdocs
  • establish a corporate identity as „Leibniz Postdocs“ and the formation of a strong network including Alumni and external organisations/industry/politics


The IPK Postdoc Board is involved in the Leibniz Postdoc Network and participates at the annual meetings. Currently, [link]Dr. Mary-Ann Blätke is a Section Officer for "Life Science" Section of the Leibniz Postdoc Network.
