This page is under development. Soon we will present offers and measures for your structured career development.


Due to the SARS-CoV-2 situation the PACT Center can only be reached via email


The main goal of the Postdoc Academic Career Support Center (PACT) is to show perspectives for professional careers after the doctorate, both for an academic career and for career opportunities outside academia. 

PACT is open to all Postdocs in temporary employment at GEOMAR. Until 2022, PACT will also give support to Senior Scientists in time-limited positions.

In the near future, offers will be presented on this page and distributed via the email list. 

Please contact us, if you want to subscribe to the list. 

If you have any questions, contact us by phone and/or email or visit us in the office in GEOMAR East, Building 4, Room 4/101 office hours from 9:00-12.00h.
