Successful Networking (March 8 and 20, 2023 | online)

Written by

Learning new communication skills

Networking well done is about nurturing relationships authentically around common interests, mutual liking, or simply respect. Yet many professionals find it difficult to do; they object to it and only turn to networking when they absolutely need help.

It doesn’t have to be this way. If we do it well, the relationships we nurture become critical to our ability to get things done, get ahead, and develop personally and professionally.

The goal of this workinar (workshop meets webinar) is to identify and unlock successful networking behaviours and learn new ways of communicating. How can I best introduce myself to others? What is most important about reaching out to contacts? Working together we will mobilize your most promising networking skills (both for academic and non-academic opportunities).

[yDiv] The power of saying no (February 17, 2023 | online)

Written by

There are free slots in the following workshop organised by yDiv the graduate school of the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig.

When everything feels like an opportunity, a priority, or an obligation, how do we say no? The truth is we cannot start saying no until we get clear on why we keep saying yes to everything.

In the webinar “The power of saying no” with lecturer Desiree Dickerson on 17 February, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, you will explore:

  • why we tend to say yes (people-pleasing, scarcity and uncertainty, perceived opportunities, regret minimisation, emotion, obligation, the path of least resistance)
  • the impacts of saying yes to everything: time poverty, exhaustion, loss of self and loss of joy for what we do
  • why we need to start saying no
  • how to start saying no (clear boundaries and priorities, with confidence and without guilt)

You can register here by 13 February. You are welcome to forward this link to interested colleagues. 

The webinar takes places within the yDiv event series ‘mental well-being in academia’.

Introduction to Statistics and R (February 28 – March 3, 2023)

Written by


R has become a leading statistical programming language in data science and statistics. The R software is free, highly extensible, and allows to easily produce publication-quality plots. The aim of this course is to equip participants with the basic skills to effectively use the software R, embedded in the user interface RStudio. These skills will cover data import, processing and data exploration, graphical representations with ggplot2, basic concepts of statistical inference and linear regression. All topics will be demonstrated in working examples and practiced with hands on examples.

In the first two days we are going to teach the basic functionality of R, RStudio, and ggplot2. Day three and four are dedicated to the application of statistical tests, which will be extended to linear mixed-effects models.

Wegbereiterinnen: Frauen in den Naturwissenschaften (19. Januar 2023)

Lise Meitner – was wir aus Ihrem „inhaltsreichen Leben“ heute lernen können

by Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz (PTB Braunschweig)

Lise Meitner gehört durch ihre Entdeckung und Erklärung der Kernspaltung zu den bedeutendsten wissenschaftlichen Persönlichkeiten des 20 Jahrhunderts. „Unsere Madame Curie“ nannte sie daher ihr Kollege Albert Einstein, und verweist damit gleichzeitig auf eine Zeit, in der Frauen in der Physik rar waren und an vielen Fronten um Anerkennung kämpfen mussten. Lise Meitner forschte unter diesen Bedingungen dennoch höchst erfolgreich, zunächst an der Universität, später am Kaiser-Wilhelm- Institut für Chemie in Berlin. Ihre herausragende Forschungskarriere wurde zu Beginn der NS-Herrschaft jäh unterbrochen und führte sie auf abenteuerlichem, beschwerlichem Weg in ein Leben im Exil in Schweden. Auch dort blieb Lise Meitner ihrem Lebensziel treu, ein „inhaltsreiches Leben“ zu führen: die Physik zu verstehen und bleibende wissenschaftliche Beiträge zu leisten.

Der Vortrag stellt Lise Meitner in verschiedenen Facetten vor, als Studentin, Physikerin, Abteilungsleiterin und Privatdozentin, aber auch als Kollegin und Freundin, und diskutiert aktuelle Bezüge zu Frauen in den Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften heute.
