GRK2062 doctoral researchers have to attend at least one course dealing with Transferable Skills. A variety of courses are offered by e.g.

If places are available in courses offered by neighbouring graduate schools e.g. LSM, IMPRS-LS, GRK1721 and QBM doctoral researchers will be informed via e-mail.

Some courses on topics like collecting data, scientific writing, or presentation skills, will be exclusively organized for the members of GRK2062.

Please note: Each doctoral researcher is required to participate in Transferable Skills Training generating a minimum of 1.0 ECTS (0.5 ECTS/day) and up to 2.0 ECTS.

Not another boring presentation - learn how to captivate your audience.
Presenting concepts, ideas, and projects, but also the company, services, and products to employees, colleagues, customers, or business partners in a convincing and effective manner is a routine part of many jobs these days. Unfortunately, only 3% of presentations captivate their audiences, while more than 80% are dull and boring.
Our aim is to ensure that your presentations are among the 3% that captivate and engage their audiences. During the 2-day workshop you will learn how to efficiently prepare a presentation and tailor it to specific audiences. You will overcome your stage fright and learn how to enjoy giving presentations. In short: you captivate your audience and win them over not only with what you are saying but also with how you are saying it. More details

Previous courses:

Effective Visual Communication for Scientists, Seyens
The course will run on the 20th and 21st of September, 2018 from 9-17:00. Participation will be awarded with 1.0 ECTS.
If created properly, graphics are the most effective way to explain complex ideas in the shortest amount of time, attract audience and raise credibility. Nevertheless, researchers aren't trained in visual communication in the traditional PhD curricula and are supposed to acquire these skills by themselves. This workshop uses a hands-on approach to help researchers visually present their own research through various means of scientific communication. More details

Selfmarketing for women, Greta Wonneberger and Sabine Walter
The course will run on the 27th and 28th of June, 2018  and again on 8th and 9th of November, 2018 from 9:00 to 18:00. For a full description please click here. Participation will be awarded with 1.0 ECTS.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) course
A Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) course hosted by the graduate school LSM will run in October 2017:
- in English (October 4-6, 2017) small lecture hall in the BMC
- in German (October 9-13, 2017) in the large lecture hall in the Biocenter
(Just to clarify, the discrepancy in the amount of days between the two courses is due to the fact that the German course has also talks from some companies incorporated. But the course content itself is the same in both EN/DE.)

Experience with GMP is expected from graduates of Life Sciences in many companies, but they are rarely taught at university. GMP-Knowledge is often a key requirement in employment vacancies, especially in the pharmaceutical industry. For this reason, a course for students and graduates in the areas of Pharmacy, Biochemistry, Biology and adjacent Sciences is offered.

Career management and life-work balance, Sabine Walter
