The membership in the doctoral program “Ethics and Responsible Leadership in Business” offers a wide range of opportunities for academic and professional exchange and networking, for example in the context of field projects with companies and NGOs and through regular discussions with experts from academia and practice. The study program promotes the research activities of the doctoral students thematically and methodologically, helps them to become aware of questions of theory-practice transfer, and broadens their research horizons.The close exchange between the doctoral students is ensured by regular events such as monthly jour fixe, work on joint projects and multi- day writing retreats.

The scholarships include a monthly living stipend of 1,350 € and research allowance of 100 € financed by the Karl Schlecht Foundation (KSG). Further candidates will be assisted with applying for other doctoral scholarships, for examples by putting them forward for doctoral scholarship by the Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft (sdw). It is also possible to participate in the doctoral program without having a scholarship.

Gender und Diversität in den Fachkulturen der Physik

by Prof. Dr. Martina Erlemann

Department of Physics, Freie Universität Berlin

Dass das Geschlecht von Forschenden in der Physik den Karriereerfolg beeinflussen kann, auch wenn es eigentlich keine Rolle spielen sollte, ist hinlänglich bekannt. Allerdings können auch soziale Herkunft, Migrationshintergrund und weitere Diversitätskategorien Auswirkungen auf eine wissenschaftliche Karriere haben. Der Vortrag wird einige Forschungsbefunde aus der Gender- und Diversitätsforschung zur Physik vorstellen. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt wird dabei auf Studien zu Arbeitsplatzkulturen in der Physik gelegt.

[IAMO] Picture a scientist (October 11, 2022)

Written by

When you picture a scientist – what do you see? 

The documentary PICTURE A SCIENTIST takes on the question why it still often is the male white scientist that comes to our minds when we hear the word „scientist“.  In this film, leading female scientists in STEM take the audience on a journey through the experiences of their academic careers – as women of science.

[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.


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.
