Natural Science Careers Workshop 10.-12.07.2018

NaturalScience.Careers was founded 2012 (as ScienceMums) by Dr. Karin Bodewits and Dr. Philipp Gramlicht. It is a brand-new portal for information, advice and seminars for the working scientists of today and tomorrow. We put together an interesting workshop for the members of our SFB 987. The workshop is free of charge but registration is required.





Convincing & debating


Scientists are often in the situation that they need to discuss their findings or their need for extra funding or resources with other members of the scientific community or with the general public. The ability to express yourself in a concise and clear manner, using strong arguments, is therefore of utmost importance.

This interactive seminar with real life scenarios, public speaking exercises, argumentation examples and debates, will help participants to successfully engage in various interactions with other scientists and non-scientists. Your Q&A sessions will never be the same again. You will convince your boss to buy this fantastic Mass Spec. You will disarm other people´s arguments against you now that you can look behind their facade. And last but not least, you will win on paper (e.g. research- and grant- proposals)!

Goodbye academia? - It has been a pleasure


Have you enjoyed research and teaching in the past years, but now you think it is time to change? Or you are just fed up, but are aware that frustration alone will not lead to a smooth transition out of academia. Maybe you are not sure yet whether to stay in academia or not, but would like to learn more about other possibilities before making any decision? In this course, which has been specifically developed for PhD students and postdocs in the natural sciences, we will not only broaden your view about everything you can do with your qualification, but also give you practical tips on how to reach your personal goals.
