Orientation and Career Events for Postdocs

The KHYS Postdoc Office offers events at regular intervals on topics that are specifically tailored to the postdoc phase. This way you have optimal orientation from the very start while, at the same time, establishing valuable contacts with the invited guests and speakers as well as other postdocs.

We invite all new postdocs to the Welcome Event for the best possible start. At this event, you can find out more about the postdoc phase at KIT and also which support and further qualification offers are available at KHYS. In the subsequent get-together you can meet other postdocs in a relaxed atmosphere.

On Postdoc Day, we offer you a comprehensive program which will answer questions on career perspectives and qualification opportunities. Afterwards, you can discuss your specific questions with the speakers and strike up a conversation with other postdocs.

The KHYS-Foyergespräche provide the framework for an interfacultative meeting of doctoral students and postdocs on topics that are of particular interest to young scientists and early-career researchers. In a joint dialog, personalities from science, economy and politics offer insights into practical situations and orientation assistance. The exchange of personal experiences is in the foreground. Following the rounds of talks, you will have the opportunity to make valuable contacts with speakers and participants during a pleasant get-together.
