Postdoc in Jena

As a postdoc in Jena, you belong to a group of about 800 individuals who are a backbone of the university's research and teaching. At the same time, postdocs are working on their qualification to become a professor (W2 or W3). In the broadest sense, leaders of groups of young researchers and junior professors also are part of this group.

The Graduate Academy offers a number of support opportunities for all postdocs at Friedrich Schiller University: e.g. key competency courses, advice for career development, support of individual initiatives and networking as well as regular information in the Postdoc Newsletter.

The Graduate Academy is committed to optimize the conditions for postdocs at the Friedrich Schiller University. What still needs to be done, was shown in the broad survey on the situation of postdocs at FSU Jena. Through the implementation of university-wide guidelines and through the support offered by the Graduate Academy, the situation of postdocs is improved step by step.

We cordially welcome all new postdocs at FSU. On this webpage you will find the most important information about your arrival in Germany, the city of Jena and the Friedrich Schiller University, so that you can have a good start in your position at FSU.
