How to "postdoc": Pathways after the PhD — •Martin Wolf — Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Berlin, Germany
Many PhD students are highly motivated and are fascinated by tackling scientific problems. Towards the end of their PhD they often wonder about the next step, whether they should go directly to industry or continue with postdoctoral research. In the latter case, various questions arise: How to identify and choose the best group and topic? How to obtain funding for a postdoc abroad? How to develop an individual scientific profile?
This public discussion at the DPG spring meeting will not provide you with any 'safe guideline' for choosing the best career path. Instead, it focusses on exemplary pathways presented by several current or recent postdoctoral researchers. They will share their experiences and highlight what they believe was important in the entire process. After this panel style discussion the floor is open for questions and statements by the audience.
