UMC-Mainz PostDoc Community

The UMC PostDoc Community is an informal association formed by all postdoctoral fellows at the University Medical Center. The PostDoc Committee, chaired by volunteers from different disciplines, organizes events and activities on behalf of all PostDocs and mediates their interactions with the faculty and administration.

Specifically, the association aims to:

  • create a network of scientific and social interactions among postdocs across all UMC-Mainz units

  • facilitate communication with UMC faculty and administration

  • help provide information on funding and career development.

If your new in Mainz, you will find our PostDoc ABC (Pdf-file, 191,8 KB) guide to be helpful.

If you are interested in doing your postdoctoral work at UMC, contact the group leader of your choice directly to ask about opportunities. Information about each group's research topics can be found in our Research Database.
