PIER Graduate Week

Our graduate week is a yearly interdisciplinary lecture and workshop week for young scientists and offers a wide range of introductory and focus courses in the PIER research fields.

The next PIER Graduate Week is scheduled for 21-24 February 2022. Due to the pandemic, the event will take place in a lightly scaled-down online form.

The graduate week's main objective is to introduce PhD students to the neighbouring PIER research fields of Particle & Astroparticle Physics, Nanoscience, Photon Science, Infection & Structural Biology. Both national and international experts offer stimulating lectures, discussion and workshops. Early career scientists, including PhD and MSc students and postdocs on Bahrenfeld campus will have the opportunity to broaden their interdisciplinary understanding and interchange with their colleagues from other research fields.

Each course is a consecutive four-day series of mini lectures. The introductory courses are designed for doctoral candidates who would like to learn more about a related research field. The focus courses are for those interested in in-depth sessions in their own area of expertise.

Complementary soft and hard skills workshops combine short lectures with practical exercises and homework. Please note: The places for these workshops are limited. In this year, the skills workshops take place after the scientific lecture week on the follwing dates:

- Fundamentals of Python (28 Feb - 2 March)
- Advanced Python and machine learning (3 + 4 March)
- Project mangement (group A: 28 Feb + 1 March)
- Project mangement (group B: 3 + 4 March)
