Clear at glance! Designing Effective Academic Posters (November 8 and 14, 2022)

Written by

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.

[Ref 3.2] Gestärkt durch die Promotion: Mentalstrategien für Promovierende (Okt-Nov 2022 | online)

Written by

Das Referat 3.2 – Personalentwicklung bietet diesen Kurs für die Zielgruppe der Promovierenden an.

Sie haben sich nach Ihrem Studium für eine wissenschaftliche Karriere entschieden? Eine Promotion kann ganz schön herausfordernd sein. Gar nicht so leicht, dabei einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren. Wenn neben der Promotion noch weitere Faktoren hinzukommen, die den Stress erhöhen, kann sich das auf Ihre Leistungsfähigkeit auswirken und auch den Erfolg Ihrer Promotion beeinflussen. Zu den Faktoren, die den Druck in der Promotionsphase erhöhen, zählen bspw. Leistungsdruck in der Forschung und beim Publizieren, Zeit- und Termindruck, berufliche Unsicherheiten oder familiäre Verpflichtungen. Wie Sie es dennoch schaffen können, den Anforderungen Ihrer Promotionszeit gerecht zu werden und trotzdem in Balance zu bleiben?

[Ref 3.2] Was bedeutet Tenure Track? (October 21, 2022 | online)

Written by

Das Referat 3.2 – Personalentwicklung bietet diesen Kurs an.

Tenure-Track-Stellen sind im deutschen akademischen System ein vergleichsweise neuer Karriereweg. Inhaber*innen einer Tenure-Track-Position erhalten nach dem erfolgreichen Abschluss ihrer Tenure-Phase direkt eine Dauerstelle, z. B. in Form einer Lebenszeitprofessur. Die Tenure-Track-Professur ist die konzeptionelle Weiterentwicklung der Juniorprofessur und daher sind die meisten Tenure-Track-Professuren in Deutschland mit einer Juniorprofessur verbunden; weniger üblich und bekannt sind Stellen im akademischen Mittelbau, z. B. als Senior Researcher oder Lecturer mit Tenure-Track. Der Workshop konzentriert sich auf Tenure-Track-Professuren in Deutschland.

Good Scientific Practice, Negotiation and Conflict Management (October 27-28, 2022)

Written by

The workshop combines Good Scientific Practice (Part 1) with Negotiation & Conflict Management (Part 2). During your doctoral studies you will come into contact with other scientists and collaborate with them. Here negotiation skills can be helpful. This may even prevent potential conflicts with your supervisor.

Part 1: Good Scientific Practice (October 27, 2022 | Weinberg Campus)

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 obstructing the research of others. More subtle topics, such as skepticism, critical thinking, reproducibility, handling creativity, the danger of axiomatic assumptions and confirmation bias occur much more often and therefore represent the “heart of good scientific practice”.

Every scientist should have a professional understanding of all mentioned topics.

“The Art of English Academic Writing” for Natural Scientists (September 13 and 28, 2022)

Written by

Aim and Content

The workshop aims at improving non-native English speakers’ academic writing skills by highlighting typical features and composing elements commonly applied and expected by native speakers of English. Participants will be equipped with a textbook written by the trainer that covers all the features introduced during the sessions, they will have ample opportunity to ask individual questions, and they will receive immediate feedback on their own writing. During the workshop we will

  • reflect on how the character of the English language influences the Anglo-Saxon academic writing style and identify subsequent features in academic texts
  • highlight pitfalls non-native speakers of English are vulnerable to when writing in English and introduce straightforward strategies to avoid them
  • present techniques for developing a fluent and lively academic writing style
  • introduce resources, aids, and methods to enlarge and retain vocabulary
  • edit text passages written by the participants

[BEAM] Voice and Body (June 14-15, 2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

Integral to voice and body training is the central idea that physical and vocal dynamics are connected to the speaker’s motivation and to the importance of the information being communicated. The trainer has a professional theatre background, which is a unique benefit for the participants to help identify the verbal challenges of each speaker, giving attention to breath, articulation, intonation, volume, modulation and tempo.

Contents

The Training is given to improve non-verbal aspects such as gesture, positioning, distance, eye contact and relationship with media. The trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in effective communication and learn how to present yourself more effectively and to make the best impression and strongest impact. Participants monitor their improvement and implement feedback through active role-play exercises in which they present themselves.

[BEAM] Workshop: How to get up after falling down (July 7, 2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

What do we do when things go wrong? How do we respond when we fail or when we have bad luck? Did you know that even BEAM failed the first time? What if … every experience of failure became an opportunity to learn and grow?

Contents

In this workshop, we discuss the many ways in which things can go wrong and we clarify what failure means to each of us, individually. Then we reflect on how we can respond to failure and use it to get better. In the end, it is all about getting up once more than falling down. This workshop is a bit different, maybe the format is unusual for you, and you decide how much you want to share. For an impression of how Rebecca Waldecker works, you can listen here (in German).

“Don’t fear failure. — Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.” ― Bruce Lee
