There are over 40 Postdoctoral scientists in CCB coming from more than 15 different countries worldwide. Despite being one of the most diverse group of professional scientists in CCB, we are all in a dynamic and transitional stage of our careers. Moreover, we are one of the major drivers of the biomedical research enterprise and, as such, we are each otherís best resource. To bring vibrant PostDocs interactions to CCB, we, the PostDocs, initiated a PostDoc community. This is an empowering network that unites all PostDocs from CCB. Our goal is to address the current issues affecting PostDocs, support their development and to make their life at CCB a pleasant experience.
What do we do?
Our activities range from social getting-to-know each other events (e.g. PostDoc Lunch, hosted on a bi-monthly basis) to more focused sessions. For instance, we have the ability to host Scientific seminars, Skill seminars and Webinar projections. Besides this, we could bring into action any new suggestion. Not only we do organize our own activities for PostDocs at CCB, but we also participate in and contribute to the major activities organized by the VIB PostDoc association such as company visits (e.g: Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Syngenta or Agrosavfe) and the Annual VIB PostDoc Day.
