Welcome to the Postdoc Association (PDA) of the MPI for Molecular Genetics

The PDA represents all postdocs at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics. The association was established in January 2019.

What we want to promote:

> Networking and scientific collaboration among the postdocs of the MPIMG and of other institutes in Berlin (MDC, BIMSB, FMP…).
> Long-term and short-term career-related issues.
> Scientific discussion with established researchers.

What we organize:

> Monthly meetings with all postdocs of the MPIMG (intranet link) including a short presentation (project, technique, article, technical issue, new scientific idea, …) and a general discussion.
> Workshops and courses covering themes dedicated to boost postdocs’ careers (scientific article writing, grant proposal writing and presentation workshops, leadership course, …).
What When
Proposal writing workshop 11-12 December 2019
Leadership course 5-7 October 2020
Getting published and mastering peer review 19-20 November 2020
> Seminars given by late-stage postdocs and young group leaders.
