Who we are

The BUA Postdoc Academy is a program of the Berlin University Alliance, a consortium of the four leading scientific institutions in Berlin: The Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt Universität, the Technische Universität and the Charité – Universitätsmedizin. 

The Postdoc Academy aims to provide targeted support for postdocs of the BUA institutions in their career development. The primary task is to assist postdocs in making informed and individually good career decisions. It creates an environment where postdocs can recognize their own strengths, acquire necessary competencies and build relevant knowledge and skills. A key aspect of this process is networking: the BUA Postdoc Academy promotes exchange and interdisciplinary networking between postdocs and other actors in the scientific community. To achieve these goals, the BUA Postdoc Academy has developed a comprehensive program portfolio that consists of eight key elements.
