Draft Paper on Established Researcher

Discussion on MaxNet till May 12

A message from Reinhard Jahn

Dear researchers:

After the successful trial in obtaining feedback for a draft document dealing with postdocs last year we now invite comments for the new draft paper of the Committee. This paper deals with the career phase following the postdoctoral phase that we broadly define as “Established Researcher”, a term adopted from the European Framework for Research Careers. Again, we invite directors, group leaders and whoever else is interested to comment on the document.
So – let us know whether you like the paper or whether there are passages you would like us to change. We also encourage you to discuss the paper with your peers. In this case, please indicate whether your comments are resulting from such internal discussions.
Due to a tight timeline, comments can only be considered if they are posted no later than May 12 this year.
Looking forward to your feedback

Reinhard Jahn
Chair, Presidential Committee “Junior Scientists in the Max-Planck Society”
