Regular events

With this seminar and discussion series we will host MPG internal and external guests to speak about topics relating to equal opportunity and diversity, within the postdoctoral community and beyond. The talks take place every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 12:00 CET. more
The Career Evolution Web Series: From Science2Industry is offered by the Industry Track of the Planck Academy in collaboration with the PhDnet and PostdocNet of the Max Planck Society. It particularly addresses Doctoral Researchers, Postdocs and Research Group Leaders but is also open to any interested party of the Max Planck Community and its friends. The talks take place on Thursdays from 16:00 - 17:00 CET  (unless stated otherwise). more

Special events and conferences

The open access webinar series continues with an introduction to finding and accessing open data. The webinar will begin with an overview of the kind of open access data available from EMBL-EBI and a demonstration of finding data on the EMBL-EBI website using EBI Search. The webinar will then focus on BioStudies, a database that holds descriptions of biological studies and links to data, both in EMBL-EBI resources and beyond. more
Continuing our series on open access, in this webinar we will discuss the role of EMBL in making science open. We will introduce Europe PMC - an open, free database of life science publications and preprints and explain how Europe PMC supports open access policies of many organisations, including EMBL. We will highlight how open access underpins innovation and the importance of licensing for reuse. Then, we will illustrate how open access to publications supports scientific reproducibility and the role that proper data citation plays in this process. Finally, we will look at preprints, as a tool for researchers to rapidly and openly share their work decoupled from the formal peer review process. more
The German Scholars Organization and the Ministry of Research and Culture in North Rhine-Westphalia are hosting a free webinar for young researchers who are interested in continuing their academic career in Germany.
Learn more about the funding landscape for junior research groups in Germany with a special focus on the Returning Scholars Program.

The event will be held in German. more
The meeting is a great opportunity to meet the Munich Epigenetic Community and to discuss recent exciting findings in chromatin biology, histone and DNA/RNA modifications and mechanisms of different epigenetic phenomena.

Registration is open until October 1st. more
Join us for the final webinar of the series focusing on open access and open science. At this webinar, on the last day of Open Access Week 2021, we will be joined by four speakers from across EMBL who have knowledge and experience of being ‘open’, from software to data resources and open access publications. more
Funding Opprtunities for PhD students and PostDocs

Integral membrane proteins (IMPs) are encoded by 20-30 % of genes in a genome and provide key functions in the cell. Due to their hydrophobic nature, they are structurally and biochemically difficult to study. Traditionally, IMPs have been extracted using detergents which are a poor mimic of the lipid membrane and have been shown to denature membrane proteins. However, newly developed lipid-nanodisc approaches enable structural and functional studies of IMPs in a detergent-free, near-native membrane environment. Therefore, a central theme of this workshop is highlighting the importance of lipids in MP research and how they can be preserved. more
The 2021 Science & Society Conference will examine the potential societal benefits of the multifaceted One Health methodology, analyse how successful it has been to-date, determine whether One Health could be the key to future pandemic prevention, and ascertain what steps are needed to accelerate implementation. It will explore whether the interpretation of One Health has been biased towards an anthropocentric view of “health”, and it will also seek to answer the question: will something as far-reaching as the COVID-19 pandemic be the catalyst needed to finally make the aspirational goals of One Health a reality? more
