The Career Network at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing is a new initiative that brings together established institute resources and career expertise into a functional network in order to structure and optimize the career development efforts at the institute.
The Career Network is chaired by Dr Gabriella Lundkvist and comprises individual Career coaching, the Grant’s office, the Equal opportunities office, the PhD student office, and a Peer board with the representatives of the Postdoc and PhD student committees.
The Career Network aims to assist and support young scientists at the institute in shaping their individual career paths and making their own academic or non-academic career choices, and thereby assuring an efficient, goal-oriented and successful time at the institute.
More specifically, the Career Network
Provides individual support, coaching, tips, advice and inspiration

Invites speakers, trainers and recruiters
