Digital Postdoc Get-Together | Postdoc Lunch

Networking and exchange are important – also and especially amongst peers.

In order to promote convivial exchange, we invite all postdocs to regular get-togethers (approx. every 6 weeks). The meetings serve as spaces where postdocs can share ideas with other postdocs, strengthen their network, and learn from the experiences of their peers. We look forward to welcoming you!

The meetings are held in either of two formats:

  • Digital postdoc get-together via Big Blue Button - links are sent out after the registration via email.
  • Postdoc lunch on site - we meet for lunch* at the restaurant Die Kate , Bismarckstrasse 32, 35390 Giessen

* Please note that the GGS cannot cover the costs for the participants' lunches, but that the lunch offers a chance of further networking on a self-payer basis.
