Primers for Predocs – Strategies for a successful doctorate

Banner Primers Winter 2019 2020

When you are doing your PhD you are managing a huge project – this means you don’t just need competences in your field of research but also other relevant skills. PhD candidates should manage their time, teach seminars, present their research, show intercultural sensitivity working in multinational teams, prepare themselves for a job after their PhD, maybe take care of an own family and much more.

In our new series "Primers for PreDocs" several speakers talk about these aspects in short lectures!  
A short reception after the talks will give you the opportunity to discuss with the speakers.
