  1. Jo30 added a post in a topic: Terminating a postdoc (TVoD) contract early   

    I need to hand in my notice on my current postdoc as I have a new job back in the UK. I have worked here for 3 years with the same employer on the TVoD payscale. Can anyone help with the notice period? I found that it should be 6 weeks but then it also said that I could only end the contract at the end of a quarter? Does that really mean there are only four times a year I can leave this contract? I was hoping to leave in May, as my new job starts in June. I appreciate any advice.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Esquina is really quite small so we will find each other really easily. Looking forward to it and see everyone tomorrow.

    Jo

    PS I am quite small with dark brown hair and I will be bringing my other half so we should be easy to spot as we will be sitting chatting in English!

    Hi Deedee,

    Meetup sounds great although I can't do Wednesday - are you free to switch it to Thursday next week at 8PM?
    Thanks, Jo

    Did any meetups happen? I am also English and living in Dortmund and agree it would be great to meet up for old fashioned English drinks and chat. Let me know if you managed to get a regular time going or if anyone is free to meet up.
    Thanks, Jo

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a good gynecologist in Dortmund who is happy speaking English? I am due for a smear test and need to make and appointment here. It would also be helpful to know what I should ask for when I book the appointment as usually the receptionist's stick with German, and my limited dictionary may mean I end up with the wrong thing!

    Many thanks,
