PIER PhD Seminar 2021 (spring)

Registration deadline 14 April 2021

Sign up for the next PIER PhD Seminar

The aim of the PIER PhD Seminar is that all participants introduce their PhD project or alternatively their research field to each other in a way that PhD students from different research fields are able to understand and to profit from the presentations. Furthermore, the audience gives feedback to the speaker so that he/she can improve his/her way of presentation. This seminar is exceptionally from PhD students to PhD students.
As laid down in the PHGS training programme (category B), all full members are requested to take part in the PIER PhD Seminar for at least one semester and to hold a presentation. All associated members are of course welcome, too! The seminar is also open and recommended for PhD students in their first year. The PIER PhD Seminar will be offered at least twice a year.

The seminar occurs 7 times plus 1 three hour preliminary training session. The training as well as the seminar will be conducted online via ZOOM. Please note: a camera and the possibility to talk (quite place) is necessary for participation.

The preliminary training will take place on 22 April from 10 am – 1 pm for all participants (group A and group B). The trainer, Carsten Rohr, will train you on what you have to pay attention to in online presentations and what you have to consider when presenting in front of a foreign (scientific) audience.
