Monday, 29. October 2018

One year ago, the postdoctoral representatives of the Leibniz Institutes met for the official founding of the "Leibniz Postdoc Network". Now they came together again in Berlin on October 19-20, 2018 for the "2nd Leibniz Postdoc Network Meeting".

During the meeting, network spokespersons were elected. HPI representatives Dr. Glòria Martrus Zapater and Dr. Estefanía Rodríguez-Burgos gave up their positions as representatives of Section C, but Dr Glòria Martrus Zapater was instead elected as Financial Officer of the Network.

“As the first Financial Officer of the Leibniz Postdoc Network, my main responsibilities will be to control the current budget, invoices and transactions in close collaboration with the Leibniz Association. As I am still part of the Leibniz Postdoc Network Steering Committee, I will further help the promotion and development of the Network and will participate in the organization of our upcoming Career Retreat and Annual Meeting“, explains Dr. Glòria Martrus Zapater her new position in the network.

The "Leibniz Postdoc Network" is intended to serve as communication platform between the Leibniz Headquarters and the postdocs of the Leibniz institutes, to create opportunities for central career development for Leibniz postdocs and to promote interdisciplinary exchange. In addition, the annual meetings of the network are intended to stimulate discussion of current topics on global challenges (e.g. air pollution, digitalization or antibiotic resistance).
