Activities of the Postdoc Association

The event series "Meet & Mingle" is a hybrid information and networking event for postdocs at Helmholtz Munich, jointly organized by the Postdoc Coordinator and the Helmholtz Munich Postdoc Association. The events are a great opportunity to meet your fellow colleagues and network in an informal setting!

Find out more about the next Meet & Mingle here.

The lunch meeting is an opportunity to connect with postdocs from different departments at Helmholtz Munich without any particular agenda. We meet regularly at the Mensa in Neuherberg, usually on the last Thursday the month.

The next Postdoc Lunch Meeting will be on Thursday, June 27th at noon.

You can just drop by and look for the sign on the table in the mensa. All postdocs are welcome! 

See you on our next lunch date!

The Welcome Team sends out welcome mails to all new postdocs at Helmholtz Munich to provide them the relevant information to settle in and to integrate with other postdocs.

Please note we do not always get information about all new postdocs immediately, so also free feel to reach out to us!
