Postdoc Academic Career Support (PACT)

Postdoc Lunch

Das Postdoc Lunch ist ein informelles Treffen der promovierten Wissenschaftler in zeitlich befristeter Anstellung am GEOMAR.

Unseren neuen Postdocs werden hier vorgestellt und willkommen geheißen. Zusammen mit den Postdoc Speakern geben wir die Möglichkeit für Fragen und einen allgemeinen Gedankenaustausch .

Während des Lockdowns, findet das Postdoc Lunch wöchentlich Dienstag von 13:00 bis 14:00 Uhr statt. Derzeit ausschließlich virtuell. Informationen zum Raum werden über den PACT-Mailverteiler zeitnah mitgeteilt und stehen im Veranstaltungskalender des GEOMAR.

In jedem zweiten Postdoc Lunch gibt es einen 20-minütigen Informationsvortrag zum Thema "Was jeder Postdoc wissen sollte". Im Anschluß besteht die Möglichkeit für Fragen und einen allgemeinen Gedankenaustausch.

Wir sind ein international besetztes Forschungsinstitut, aus diesem Grund wird während des Postdoc Lunches Englisch gesprochen.

Through the COVID-10 pandemic, digital platforms have become increasingly important tools to network and communicate your science within the research community and to wider audiences. However, this shift away from in-person meetings and conferences was very abrupt.

In this light, we plan for the Postdoc Lunch a series of Teaser Talks highlighting key topics on science communication from the personal experiences of well-known researchers and professionals and how communicating your science to the outside world may benefit your scientific profile and visibility.
