Junior Professors and Research Group Leaders Network (jungle_net)

The "Junior Professors and Junior Research Group Leaders Network" (jungle_net) was founded at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf in 2009.
It consists of junior professors and junior research group leaders at Heinrich Heine University who independently lead a junior research group, manage their own budget and can supervise and examine PhD students, but who do not have a permanent faculty position yet.

jungle_net would like to be a platform with the aim of

  • exchanging experiences with regard to leading scientific and academic study groups across disciplinary boundaries in an open atmosphere,
  • increasing the profile of junior scientists and scholars at HHU (and therefore also the attractiveness of the university in the hope that new junior research groups establish themselves there), 
  • being a first contact for newly arriving junior researchers starting their research work at HHU.


Upcoming events:


26 June 2023, 2pm-4pm
Faculty Club at HHU
Exchange and discussion with HHU's president Prof. Dr. Anja Steinbeck

20 July 2023, 12 pm
