Networking Opportunities for Young Investigators Group Leaders

are intended to provide guidance for your current and future career planning in science.

Discussion with the Directors

Once a year, the heads of the young investigators groups are invited to lunch with the Board of Directors in the Seecasino. The directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich are very interested in direct communication with early-career scientists in finding out more about their research and personal plans. It is also an ideal opportunity for mutual networking. New young investigators group heads will have the opportunity to present their research projects.

Dr. Katharina Klein, Corporate Development

Presentation to the Main Committee of the Scientific and Technical Council

The young investigators group heads can present themselves and their projects during their first year of funding to the Main Committee of the Scientific and Technical Council. The aim is to identify potential cooperation and networking opportunities on the campus in the early stages of a project and to engage in dialogue with scientists from other disciplines.

Dr. Sascha Pust, Scientific and Technical Council

Networking Lunch

Twice a year, the young investigators group leaders of the Forschungszentrum are invited to discuss the opportunities and challenges they face as group leaders. In order to benefit as best as possible from the exchange of experience, this invitation is also addressed to the former heads of the young investigators groups at Forschungszentrum Jülich. In addition, the networking lunch serves to obtain information on funding opportunities or interdisciplinary qualification offers.
