DSMZ-Personalia: Dr. Sami Ullah is the new spokesperson of the Leibniz PostDoc Network
At the fifth annual meeting of the Leibniz PostDoc Network on 11 and 12 November 2021, scientist Dr. Sami Ullah from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures GmbH in Braunschweig, was elected spokesperson for the network. The biologist shares this role with Dr. Marta Ferreira-Gomes from the German Rheumatism Research Centre Berlin.
„I am looking forward to the tasks that await me in the next few years,“ says Dr. Sami Ullah, who conducts research at the Leibniz Institute DSMZ in the Department of Human and Animal Cell Cultures on the transfer of cell lines into animal product-free cultures. „The Leibniz PostDoc Network is a good place to start for young researchers in the Leibniz Association. It’s a place where we can not only support each other to develop professionally, but also serves as a central point when we are unsettled in our careers or personal lives.“
Leibniz PostDoc Network
In 2017, the Leibniz PostDoc Network was founded to provide a communication platform for all young researchers in the Leibniz Association and to give them their own as well as a collective voice. After completing their doctorate, researchers have to make complex decisions that influence both their private and professional future. The PostDoc Network supports the researchers of the Leibniz Association in this process. Various working groups focus on topics such as communication, building professional networks, career development or sustainability.
