Women's Careers and Networks 2021


The next Women’s Careers and Networking symposium (WoCaNet 2021) is taking place from 27 to 28 May 2021: Register now!
The aim of WoCaNet is to provide an interactive environment for young female scientists to find new possibilities and networking opportunities, while learning from the valuable experiences of renowned women and men of diverse professional backgrounds. Register early to secure a spot in one of our workshops to polish those skills that you want to develop further, and visit our career fair to explore various career paths.
Even though this 7th edition of WoCaNet in 2021 will be online due to the pandemic, this grants us an exceptional opportunity to expand our contacts beyond frontiers, as unlike in the previous six symposia, participants will not be physically limited to the Göttingen area, where the WoCaNets have taken place so far.
To the men and everyone reading this who doesn’t identify as female: WoCaNet is also for you! This symposium wants to foster the networking opportunities for women to reduce gender gaps in science - this automatically makes you a protagonist of the story, too! Give us a vote of trust and follow up on WoCaNet 2021, it could be a great opportunity for your career as well! All genders welcome!

Curious? Check out our website (www.wocanet.uni-goettingen.de) and follow us on Twitter (@WoCaNet), Facebook (@WoCaNet21) and LinkedIn (wocanet2021)!
Don´t miss out on this great networking opportunity! Register now!
Registration fees:
• Attending the symposium is FREE, but registration is mandatory

Registration deadline: 30.04.2021

See you all at WoCaNet 2021!
The WoCaNet 2021 Organizing Team


The Göttingen Graduate Center for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB) was founded in 2007. The center is a joint enterprise between four faculties of the University of Göttingen (Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, Physics), the Max Planck Institutes for Biophysical Chemistry (MPI-bpc), Experimental Medicine (MPI-em), and Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-ds), and the German Primate Center (DPZ). Fifteen doctoral programs are currently united under the roof of GGNB, including the MSc/PhD programs - International Max Planck Research Schools "Molecular Biology" and "Neurosciences". All GGNB programs share a scientific and/or methodical focus. GGNB provides a common interdisciplinary training platform for all qualified doctoral students in the neurosciences, biophysics and the molecular biosciences. All courses are in English.

The faculty of GGNB comprises world-class scientists as documented by many outstanding scientific contributions in high-impact journals and by prestigious awards and prizes. For instance, the faculty includes two Nobel laureates, thirteen recipients of the Leibniz Prize, and two recipients of the German Future Prize. However, the scientific strength of the school not only rests on the contributions of outstanding individuals but also on an intensive collaboration between the participating institutions.

In 2007 and 2012, GGNB was successful in its bid for funding in the Excellence Initiative by the German Federal and State Government to promote science and research at German universities.
