Every year, two postdoc representatives are elected to serve for a period of one year. They contribute ideas and concepts for postdoctoral funding programmes together with the ZMT Academy and are responsible for putting forward their peers’ suggestions and requirements. The postdoc representatives are an integral part of the Doctoral Studies Circle and contribute to discussions about the function of ZMT and its vision for the future during strategy meetings. They are also involved in cross-institutional cooperation at postdoc level within the Leibniz Association.

In a large and multidisciplinary institute such as ZMT, sharing experience, knowledge, and insights among postdocs benefits both the institute and the postdocs themselves. Postdocs at ZMT have the privilege to become actively integrated in decision-making processes, giving them the opportunity to boost their profiles within ZMT and beyond.
