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.
Jungle Net meets every other month on the last Wednesday of the month at SSC (Building 21.02) room 29 or in a virtual meeting room. Up to date information on that is available via the Jungle Net Mailing List or through the Jungle_net HHU Rocket Chat Channel.
The next meetings are on:
23.02.2021, 1:00 p.m.
14.04.2021, 11:00 a.m.
30.06.2021, 04-05p.m. exchange with the university president
