Postdocs at the DZNE

The purpose of a postdoc phase is to build and enhance the postdoc's scientific skills. As a postdoc at the DZNE, you are able to pursue your research largely independently, under the direction of your research group leader in your research area. You work to develop your own scientific profile and your ability to conduct research independently.

The central aspects of any postdoc phase include preparing for the next career step. The DZNE supports you in such preparations – in part, through its DZNE Career Center. In addition, the DZNE offers outstanding postdocs the opportunity to become a Career Development Fellow, an internal career program of professional and personal development in preparation for an academic leadership position.

Career Development Fellow: An internal career program

The DZNE offers the Career Development Fellow program with the aim of supporting outstanding postdocs as they move to undertake their own independent scientific careers. Fellows receive the opportunity to establish their own research line and take on budget responsibility – and thereby develop their profile and visibility in the competition for scientific leadership positions.

The DZNE's Career Development Fellows receive mentoring support oriented to scientific and career-related topics. In addition, the DZNE Career Center offers them a structured development program that prepares them for leadership of a Young Investigators group / research group.

Career Development Fellow positions normally have a duration of five years. They are designed to support Fellows for the transition to a scientific leadership position.
