Good Scientific Practice (April 22, 2021 | online)

Written by

Good scientific practice covers a substantial spectrum of scientific conduct: Dealing with data (including checking, recording, ownership and storage), the publishing process and authorship, responsible supervision, academic cooperation, conflicts of interest and dealing with conflicts. Inappropriate academic behaviour includes inventing or faking data, violating intellectual property (theft of ideas or plagiarism), and sabotaging the research of others. More subtle topics, such as skepticism, critical thinking, reproducibility, handling creativity, the danger of axiomatic assumptions and confirmation bias represent the “heart of good scientific practice”. Every scientist should have a professional understanding of all mentioned topics.

Information on dealing with the novel corona virus

Written by

Following federal and state consultations and the extension of the lockdown until February 14, 2021, the rectorate decided on January 20, 2021 to suspend classroom teaching until the end of the winter semester’s lecture period – excluding the already known exceptions. This means that laboratory practicals, field exercises and excavations as well as music and sports practicals can continue to be carried out if strict hygiene concepts are applied, in particular FFP2 masks are worn.

Doctoral defences
  • the Rectorate of MLU recommends doctoral defences in digital form
  • the consent of all parties involved is required
  • the final decision on the performance in digital form is made by the Dean or the doctoral committee in accordance with the relevant doctoral regulations
  • If, exceptionally, an oral doctoral examination is to be held in person, the relevant hygiene guidelines of the state of Saxony-Anhalt and the university are to be applied

Successful Networking ( May 4 and 6, 2021 | 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).

Written by

The SFB1423, the TRR67 and the SFB1052 mainly at Leipzig University (UL) pool gender equality measures, ideas and offers, in order to sustainably establish the common goal of promoting equal opportunities in research networks. The pooling strategy enables the organization of gender equality activities, which are directly oriented towards the needs in the collaborations, and also provides a common exchange platform. The different workshops will be combined with an opening lecture in which the personal career path of a female scientist working in the research network will be presented. The lectures and the talks are in german language.

English Academic Writing: The Ground Rules of Writing Well (April 27-30, 2021 | online)

Written by

This online workshop addresses junior and senior scholars from the social sciences and humanities who have good command of the English language, seek to improve their English writing skills, and strive to make their academic papers more idiomatic. The workshop seeks to create an awareness of the typical patterns of non-idiomatic writing to which non-native authors writing in English – and especially German-speaking academics – are prone and equip the participants with strategies to avoid these pitfalls.

The workshop comprises 3 half-day sessions and will be conducted in English by two trainers who have a professional background in the social sciences and many years of experience in teaching English academic writing and in translating and editing academic texts by German-speaking scholars.

Design of Academic Posters ( April 13 and 16, 2021 | online)

Written by

Starting Point

Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them, and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear message, 
a text format optimized for best legibility and well-chosen graphics. And above all, you need to think well through how to organize, arrange and illustrate your research content for a printed or digital poster format.

Basic rules of graphic design and layout technique will help you to present your work in a visually well-structured and compelling way. The training shows you how to present your research efficiently and provides time to put directly into practice what you have learned.
