Developing and structuring ideas in the world of projects (November 27, 2018)

Every project starts with an idea. However, you cannot develop every idea into a project. It seems trivial that developing ideas is a crucial part of the scientific work life, but have you ever spent some time on finding out more about this important process for your career? How to create, develop, select, evolve and realize ideas in the context of research projects? In this workshop, we will provide information on some aspects of idea development an enable you to find out how you can train and optimize idea development according to your own preferences. The target audience of this workshop are PhD-students and early postdocs. Continue reading “Developing and structuring ideas in the world of projects (November 27, 2018)”

Good scientific practice seminar (November 20, 2018)

Every scientist doing research at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and Leipzig University has to comply with the rules of good scientific practice.

In this workshop principles of good scientific practice, e.g. professional standards such as honesty and openness, as well as data preparation and documentation will be discussed.

Time and Self-Management (November 9, 2018)

Working toward a doctoral degree can be challenging, as doctoral students are required to meet several demands from personal and professional areas of life: they have to plan and master deadlines, solve problems, participate at meetings, communicate with colleagues and supervisors and find a balance between work and private life. A number of PhD students even want to drop out – but if the reason for not finishing the PhD is the feeling of being overwhelmed by work it is possible to counteract: with the use of efficient methods and strategies they will be able to finish their thesis.
