Postdoc Network Utrecht

Who we are

Postdoc Network Utrecht (PNU) aims to connect all lifesciences postdocs (and also assistant-professors and other interested scientific personnel) to unite them, help with career development and act as a liaison to UU and UMC policy makers.


Postdoc events are organized ~twice a year. At the first (start-up) event organized by PNU, the president of PNU, Nicoline Korthagen (postdoc Veterinary Medicine UU / Orthopedics UMC) introduced the platform to an audience of 30 postdocs form different departments. By recognizing the discrepancies between the needs and the pressure exerted on postdocs and the support and resources available at Utrecht Science Park, PNU intends to facilitate the access to information on courses, grant application deadline and training.

National network

PNU is part of the national network for postdocs: PostdocNL.
