Primers for PreDocs Winter 2019/20 – new program for the winter semester online
The new “Primers for PreDocs” program for the winter semester 2019/20 is online! Whether it is „Project Management“, „Critical Thinking“ or „Scientific Writing“ – in order to manage your PhD you don’t just need competences in your field of research but also other relevant skills. In our lecture series several speakers talk about these and other aspects in short lectures. A short reception after the talks will give you the opportunity to discuss with the speakers.
We look forward to seeing you at our lectures: every Wednesday from 1 pm at the HCA, Stucco room, Hauptstraße 120, 69117 Heidelberg. Make sure to register today on our website.
