The current member postdoc associations of MPN include:

The HMGU Postdoc Association was founded in October 2018 at the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) with the aim of improving the conditions for postdocs at the centre. Our main objectives are
  • To achieve a higher visibility of postdocs at the HMGU
  • To improve interaction among postdocs through events
  • To foster contact with external postdoc associations
We represent the interests of the postdocs to management and committees at the HMGU and serve as a central point of contact for any questions, comments, and suggestions. The HMGU Postdoc Association also organises scientific, career and networking events for postdocs and provides information and assistance to new (and established) postdoc researchers at the centre. We are always happy to get in touch and to welcome new members to the HMGU Postdoc Association! Stay up to date on our website! more
In our association all researchers of the Faculty of Biology of the LMU from the PhD level on are welcome. Our main goal is to provide a platform for a lively exchange of information on a scientific and organizational level. During our monthly meetings, topics are discussed such as support options for the acquisition of third-party funding, the path to scientific independence, the habilitation process, innovations and structures in the faculty and the organization of teaching. The participation of employees who are at different qualification levels enables active peer-to-peer mentoring within the group. more
The BMC postdoc-initiative serves as a networking forum for postdoctoral researchers associated with the Biomedical Center Munich BMC (belonging to the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich) By offering opportunities for interdepartmental peer exchange, sharing expertise, information and resources, we hope to create positive effects for ongoing research, for integration of new postdocs and for career development. Seminars and events are organized on a regular basis, addressing relevant topics, such as emerging experimental techniques, project management as well as career orientation and work-life-balance. more
The Postdoctoral Association (PDA) of Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) represents all postdoctoral fellows of the institute and aims to facilitate the integration of new postdocs in the postdoc community and improve communication and collaboration among postdocs by organizing scientific and social events. The PDA serves as an interface between the administration of the institute and the postdocs. more
The postdoctoral association (PDA) represents all postdoctoral fellows of the MPI of Neurobiology and organizes courses, seminars and social activities. The PDA also serves as an interface between the administration of the institute and the postdocs. more
Our postdoc group at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry integrates scientists working on basic science as well as clinical research in the field of Psychiatry and Neuroscience. Together we aim to act as a platform for social interactions and as a support group in career development. We also actively bring together the different people at the institute, encouraging the communication between administration, group leaders, PhD students, scientific staff and postdocs. If you have any suggestions for our group, we would be more than happy to listen.  more
