Postdoc Team at GEOMAR


The Postdoc team is the institutional representation of all GEOMAR Postdocs and is available for questions and suggestions from the postdoc community.

The current representatives were elected at the plenary meeting on October 1, 2019. All postdoctoral researchers at GEOMAR in temporary employment were invited to the General Assembly.

Eight representatives were elected from the 4 research divisions.  The election is valid for one year, and is automatically extended for another year for half of the team. This is  to ensure continuity in the current activities or the team.

The representatives of the Postdocs are in regular contact with the Board of Directors and the Directorate of GEOMAR, via the contact person for the promotion of young researchers.

Two representatives of the Postdoc team are permanent guests at the Scientific Council of GEOMAR.

The Postdoc team is in close contact with the Postdoc Academic Career Support Center PACT.

Information about the activities of the Postdoc team is distributed via an email list. To be added to the mailing list subscribe here
