Von PostDocs für PostDocs

Es gibt eine Reihe von Aktivititäten, die von PostDocs der Universität Graz für PostDocs organisiert werden. Das PostDoc-Büro freut sich über alle Informationen zu bestehenden Gruppen und Netzwerken!

What are your writing goals this year? Do you have an action plan on how you are going to achieve them and when you are going to get all that writing done?

Studies show that the most popular, yet least effective way to write in academia is binge-writing. The most effective way to write is to set a dedicated, defensible time slot for writing. But setting schedules is different from sticking to them (all the more so with home-office). Writing in a group has many benefits: it provides accountability that helps stick to that schedule, social support, and community for sharing experiences and best practices with others at a similar academic level (post-doc).

How it works:

The writing slot consists of a brief intro and set up (up to 15 min), hardcore writing (1h+), and brief outro part (up to 15 min). In the intro we report how far along we are with our weekly writing goals outside the group and we set our writing goals for the current slot. The hardcore writing slot is just that: turn off the phone and email and just write. In the outro we reward ourselves for the hard work, socialize, share writing experiences and best practices, and - importantly - commit to our goals until the next meeting.

The group will meet every Friday from 9-10.30am online (meeting link can be requested from postdoc@uni-graz.at) and if possible in person (Location: Heinrichstrasse 22, 8010 Graz, 2nd floor, turn left, first room).  Addtional weekly slots on other days possible. Post-docs of all fields welcome. International scholars welcome.

(Informal) studies have shown that professors and PhD students might want to join, so keep this group a secret only for post-docs! ;-) The idea for this format is inspired by Ch. 4 in Silvia, P. J. (2007). How to write a lot: A practical guide to productive academic writing. American Psychological Association. 

Die seit 2020 bestehende Austausch- und Networking-Gruppe lädt alle Interessierten herzlich ein: Jeden dritten Mittwoch im Monat treffen sich Grazer Postdoktorand:innen in der Posaune zum PostDoc Social Evening. Das PostDoc-Büro unterstützt bei der Organisation, daher Anmeldungen bitte bis jeweils Montag davor an postdoc@uni-graz.at für die Reservierung im Lokal. 

Partner:innen von Postdoktorand:innen der Universität Graz sind herzlich eingeladen, sich an der PoP (Parters of PostDocs) Group zu beteiligen! Diese dient der Vernetzung, dem Austauschen hilfreicher Informationen, der gemeinsamen Freizeitgestaltung - je nach Bedarf!  Zur Koordination gibt es eine Signal-Gruppe.

The connecting.postdocs mailing list results from a proactive peer network of PostDocs across all disciplines and faculties – from social to natural sciences – at the University of Graz. While the University Management runs different programmes, initiatives and actions directed at PostDocs, we felt the need to create this independent network in order to facilitate informal and formal communication between researchers in their postdoctoral stage. Through this connecting.postdocs mailing list, you are invited to share work-related initiatives, activities and information for and by PostDocs at the University of Graz and beyond. In addition, this channel seeks to enable exchange regarding issues and concerns such as representation, visibility and career planning for postdoctoral researchers. Contact: Lydia Arantes
