Postdoc community

Support and socializing

The Postdoc association at MFPL works to encourage both the professional and social development of its members.
The Postdoc representatives (who serve for approximately two years) regularly meet with the directorate to bring up issues raised by their colleagues. Additionally, the MFPL Postdocs are part of the larger Vienna BioCenter (VBC) Postdoc community which includes Postdocs from the four institutes at the VBC (GMI, IMBA, IMP and MFPL).
We aim to provide a platform for Postdocs to develop their scientific careers and use the Postdoc association for their benefit. We are organizing courses, workshops, social events, and a yearly VBC Postdoc retreat to enhance the skills of our members, and provide an opportunity for networking amongst our community.
