POSTPONED: PIER Career Week 2020

30 March - 3 April 2020, DESY


Due to the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak all workshops of the PIER Career Week for PhD students from 30 March - 3 April are cancelled.

The PIER Office is planning on shifting the workshops to a new date as soon as the situation will allow us to do so. We will reach out to everyone originally registered for this event as soon as we have a new date and time available.


As a PhD student you are used to thinking about yourself as a specialist only, but in the course of your research, you have or will acquire valuable transferable skills that are highly sought after by today’s employers.

The PIER Career Week 2020 will offer in-depth training in several key skills areas that a well-rounded doctoral graduate is expected to have these days.

The four workshops take place between 30 March and 3 April 2020 and are designed for PhD students at all levels, depending on the individual needs of the respective stage of your research project.

All trainers are carefully selected experts with many years of experience in teaching scientists. For details and registration see here:

Supervision and leadership: 30-31 March 2020
Career planning: 31 March 2020 - 1 April 2020
