Postdoc Workshop "Beyond Science"

Postdoc Workshop "Beyond Science"

Scientists’ roles outside the lab

The Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB, invites postdocs to their novel workshop “Beyond Science - Scientists’ roles outside the lab”.

This 4-day event will give selected postdocs a look behind the scenes to better understand how

-        editorial boards of scientific journals decide on submitted manuscripts

-        grant proposals are evaluated by funding agencies

-        search committees assess applications and how they interview for group leader positions

-        scientific misconduct is investigated.

By seeing these processes from the other perspective, postdocs will get a better understanding of how decisions are made that will directly affect their scientific lives. The workshop will thus support them in their development as independent and active scientists.

Time and venue:            24-27 April 2018 at IMB in Mainz

Application deadline:     10 November 2017
