Are you a postdoc in a group that is affiliated with EPS, then you can register as a postdoc. As a registered postdoc you may benefit from a reduced course fee if you participate in activities organized by EPS or by one of the affiliated universities and institutes. A variety of courses, seminars, workshops and symposia is available to increase your in-depth knowledge of specific research topics, or to broaden your scientific horizons and your professional network. Additionally, the general skill training activities will enable you to continue your career inside academia or to explore alternative career paths outside of academia. To register as a postdoc with the graduate school, please fill in the following form, Registration form postdoc, and send a digital copy to Anja Mosselman, office assistant EPS. In the registration form we ask you for your expertise. To supply the appropriate and desired educational format and content, the graduate school highly values not just your opinion on the training activities that EPS offers but also your expertise. With your support in organizing courses and seminars we can offer a broader range. If you have any comments or suggestions you can always contact the Education Coordinator, Juliane Teapal.

Career Development

We would like to support you as much as possible with your career development. Next to various workshops (mostly organized by the EPS postdoc council) and trainings we created  a career development plan. We kindly ask you to discuss your (career) plans and expectation of your postdoc with your PI right in the beginning of your contract. In that case you are well prepared what is still needed to reach certain (career ) goals and can plan trainings ahead. You hopefully also get an overview what career options are out there, next to the academic one. If you have not received the career development plan during your registration, you can download it here.

Courses & Meetings outside of EPS

If you, as an EPS registered postdoc, would like to participate in a course organized at one of the affiliated universities or institutes, but there is a difference in fee for postdocs from that particular university/institute (internal fee) and postdocs from outside that particular university/institute (external fee), please consider asking EPS for compensation for this difference. You can send your request for compensation together with 1) documentation about the course content, 2) documentation about the differences in the fees, and 3) your motivation for participating in this particular course to the Education Coordinator, Juliane Teapal. Please note that there is no guarantee that your request for compensation will be fulfilled.
