Not only doctoral candidates need support in their personal and scientific development. Also postdocs are often at the beginning of their career and have to take decisions about their priorities and their future.
The Freiburg Research Services (FRS) is a central organization of the University of Freiburg and offers a wide range of courses for postdocs.
Postdocs are also invited to participate in certain events of the graduate program. For example postdocs can lead the scientific work at the junior scientist workshop, participate in the after work hangouts or the exchange program to collect research experiences abroad. Additionally, they can be nominated by a doctoral candidate to become a member of the thesis committee. This provides an occasion for postdocs to train the supervision and guidance of doctoral candidates in an early career phase together with experienced advisors.
