    We not only want to support you when you move to Germany and start conducting research at Julius-Maximilians-Universität but also strive to give you further opportunities to refine your talents and develop your professional career. In this context, the Welcome Center can assist your search for advanced training by communicating your requests to our respective cooperation partners, for whose support we are very grateful.

    The University of Würzburg Graduate Schools (UWGS) offer diversified, professional trainings on interdisciplinary topics. The PostDoc Plus Programme is tailored to the needs of post-doctoral researchers and professionals with some experience. The workshops cover topics such as:

    Workshops offered in this programme cover topics such as:

    • Posterdesign

    Generally, a small attendance fee is collected for the classes.

    Dr. Franz-Xaver Kober is the responsible contact person and course coordinator in charge of all advanced training programmes at UWGS.

    When places in the courses are allocated, graduate school members take priority. However, if you are interested in one of the workshops, please, contact the Welcome Center (if possible 3 weeks before the respective date) and state your interest. We will do our best to make your participation possible.

    A second option is to directly contact Dr. Kober (fxaver.kober@uni-wuerzburg.de) or register online for a class.  

    The deadline for registration normally expires 10 days before the course starts.
