Production of organic foils – Insights into industrial research

Young scientists from the Collaborative Research Centre  “Polymers under Multiple Constraints” (SFB/TRR 102) were able to experience the production of multilayer films from biopolymers at the Schwarzheide Biopolymer Processing Center. The physicists and chemists learned about the potential and challenges biopolymers present for the packaging industry on February 21,2018 when they visited the site of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Schwarzheide.

58. DPG-Wochenendseminar „Physiker/Innen im Beruf“ (May 4-6, 2018)

im: Physikzentrum, Hauptstraße 5, 53604 Bad Honnef


Der Übergang von der Hochschule in die berufliche Karriere fällt vielen Universitätsabsolventen erfahrungsgemäß schwer, da sie oftmals weder mit den Anforderungen noch den Abläufen in der Industrie vertraut sind. Dieses vom Regionalverband Hessen-Mittelrhein-Saar organisierte Seminar soll Ihnen durch Erfahrungsberichte etablierter Physiker wie auch Anfänger aus Industrie und Forschung die Möglichkeit einer Orientierung bieten. Bei der Auswahl der Vortragenden wurde Wert darauf gelegt, möglichst verschiedene Arbeitsgebiete abzudecken, um Ihnen das breite Einsatzspektrum des Physikers darzustellen.

11th International Workshop on Engineering of Functional Interfaces (EnFI 2018) (July 01, 2018 – July 03, 2018)

EnFI 2018 will be organized by the Kurt-Schwabe-Institut für Mess- und Sensortechnik e.V. Meinsberg/Germany on July 01 – July 03 at the Leucorea in Wittenberg/Germany.

EnFI is an interdisciplinary workshop for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers and covers all aspects of functional interfaces from materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering to medicine and biology.

Website of the workshop: http://enfi2018.ksi-meinsberg.de


The EnFI 2018 workshop aims at summarizing the enormous progress in the rapidly growing cross-disciplinary field of functional interfaces, and enhancing the exchange of ideas and understanding by bringing under the same roof experts and students from the different fields of materials science, physics, biophysics, chemistry, biology, engineering and medicine.

Functional interfaces play a key role in the design and synthesis of advanced materials with tailored properties. This holds for all modern top-down fabrication schemes for nanostructured materials and surfaces by thin-film technology in all its varieties. And, it is true as well for the bottom-up, often using bioinspired self-organization methods to assemble materials at the molecular scale in a predefined way for a rational surface engineering.

Academic Writing – July 9-10, 2018

For many young scientists writing is the most difficult part of research work. Poor structure, breakneck formulations and unclear argumentation lead to texts which are not too user friendly. However, for the success of academics it is essential that the content is successfully conveyed to the relevant target groups – from the subject community to the wider public.

Career workshop: How to write a persuasive job application – how to convince it in the job interview (June 19-20, 2018)

Scientists make a lot of mistakes as soon as they start to apply outside science. This workshop will help you to write a convincing application and to be successful in the job interview.

Funding Opportunities for Early Career Scientists with focus on DFG Research Grants (June 7, 2018)

Within this workshop we guide you shortly through the funding programs of the German research association and other research funding organizations of relevance. Aim of the seminar is to shed light on the detailed structure, important points to make your proposal competitive as well as all formal aspects of the DFG-proposal (Basic Module & Module Temporary Positions for Principal Investigators). Continue reading “Funding Opportunities for Early Career Scientists with focus on DFG Research Grants (June 7, 2018)”

Time and Self-Management (May 28 & June 26, 2018)

Time-management is not something just theoretical: understanding the principles it is essential but the application to day by day life is what really matters. Therefore, this course is divided in two workshops separated by roughly a month. During the time in between you have the opportunity to try the techniques and principles you learned in the first workshop. In same cases it is just about observing your processes and behaviors with a new understanding. During the second workshop we will build upon your observations and experiences: Continue reading “Time and Self-Management (May 28 & June 26, 2018)”
