Vortragende:r: Prof. Michael Decker

The actual supervision of PhD students is in many cases done by Postdocs or early career researchers. This work, when successfully done, is without doubt the key to success for any academic career, and at the same time can be a very rewarding experience.

Nevertheless, especially for an early career independent researcher, this can be a highly challenging task, which raises several questions.

The exchange of experience and problem-solving approaches constitute the seminar. It is of utmost importance to discuss and work on the problems you actually encounter. Furthermore, input will be given on the legal background, time- and self-management principles, and the peculiarities of a PhD in the Life Sciences and in structured PhD programs like the GSLS. more
