PACT (Postdoc Academic Career Support Center)

The "Postdoc Academic Career Support Center" (PACT) at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is the central contact point for postdoctoral scientists in temporary employment at GEOMAR. PACT supports the implementation of the Helmholtz Postdoc Guidelines and shows perspectives for the professional career after the PhD. It offers individual support for early career development, regardless of the chosen career path.

Through PACT, GEOMAR postdocs and associated scientists have access to tailored tools for their career development. It offers information, internal training, opportunities to participate in external seminars and, most importantly, personal support and coaching. FYORD members employed at Kiel University can participate in numerous PACT offers.
