GRK Doctoral Seminar
Welcome to the Seminar of the Graduate Research Traning group. We regularly meet on Thursday's at 3pm, during the semester.
The stage is yours - pick a format
- Present your results or
- introduce an experimental, computational, theoretical, ... method or
- give a tutorial on a specific tool, e.g., a software you developed, or
- showcase the topics of your research group in a joint talk with your work group colleagues
Become an effective communicator
- Practice to introduce your field of research to a broad audience of physicists
- Explain your research ideas such that student peers can follow
- React to scientific questions from the audience
- Train your PhD defense or conference talk
- Make your results more visible and get others interested in your research
- Reference your article or an abstract in our GRK Research Gate group. People might want to look up your topic there.
Improve your skills & give and take feedback
- Interactive feedback collected anonimously on our pinboard during your talk
- Discussion with peers in breakoutrooms to improve your talk in a safe environment
All contributers are eligible for a GRK certificate upon PhD completion.
Abstracts, including a teaser graphic, will be advertised on the on the
info screens in our department and linked in our calendar.
Impressions from Doctoral Seminars
Segments of the Doctoral Seminar
This GRK segment offers unique opportunities to participate in small events with internationally recognized scientists, who provide an overview and roadmap of developing research interests in physics.
PhD students are encouraged to present their work to fellow students. Participating offers the unique opportunity to ask all levels of questions (even "entry level" questions) in the seminar to develop an understanding of other hot topics in physics, outside the own research project.
At least once per year the GRK hosts a soft-skill workshop, where students work in groups up to 12 students together with a highly experienced trainer over the course of 1-2 days. All members are invited to suggest topics or trainers.
