Postdoc Appreciation Week Germany - Toolkit for PIs, Group Leaders and Professors

  • 1. ROR icon Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry


The Postdoc Appreciation Week (PAW) has been celebrated in the USA and UK for several years
(3 rd week of September) to bring postdocs into the limelight. We strongly believe that postdocs in
Germany deserve more attention, visibility, and support given their key role in the German academic
system – and their difficult working conditions and career prospects coupled with an often very one-
dimensional evaluation culture.

We have created this toolkit to give professors, team leaders, and PIs guidance and good practice
examples, to thank and support postdocs for their great work.
