Doc and Postdoc Workshop FG Social Psychology 2024

We are excited to announce that applications are now open for the SoDoc and the PostDoc workshops, hosted by the University of Hagen from September 25th to 27th.

This year, we are happy to be able to bring together PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from various fields of social psychology to spend some inspiring days together in the city of Hagen. The workshops are designed to provide a platform for participants to present their (PhD) projects and receive individualized feedback from expert teachers. This year’s format of combining the two programs in one location allows connecting individuals at different stages of their career. However, the workshops will primarily be held separately to account for the specific interests and needs of each career stage.

Schedule and additional information you may need will follow.

Application form is still open until June 30! Please apply here:

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the organizing team from the University of Hagen (sopostdoc24).

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Hagen!

P.S. We are trying to organize childcare during the event, please let us know if you might want to bring kids.
