The Alumninet of the MPI Dortmund

The Alumninet of the MPI Dortmund


Research is a process, which is never stationary or comes to an end. A scientist’s life is characterized by numerous professional changes and a high level of mobility. Nevertheless, they often keep in touch with former colleagues and research facilities. In many cases this leads to long-lasting and fruitful cooperation. 

With great interest, we try to follow the career steps of our alumni and try not to lose track of them. The MPI Dortmund was a milestone in the career of many of them. There they not only met new friends but also established important scientific contacts. The idea behind setting up our Alumni Net is to create a platform where scientists - in a simple way – can stay in close contact as well as with the institute. More than that, this network this network will help to establish new connections between Alumni and scientists currently working at the MPI Dortmund.

MMembers of the AlumniNet will be invited to special events and Alumni meetings. Furthermore, we plan to offer a communication platform to for example spread information on events, symposia, lectures or job ads. Registration to the AlumniNet is open to all former members of the MPI Dortmund who worked at the institute for more than six months. If you have further questions contact us via .

Furthermore, Alumni can benefit from numerous offers and events hosted by the Max Planck Society: Alumni can participate in a “Symposium for Alumni and Early Career Researcher” - an event held on a regular basis – and get access to an internal communication platform maxNet. In addition, the Max Planck Alumni Association makes an independent platform available for all alumni – cooperation, global networking and personal career development ensue from this.
