Benefits from PIER for my career (Cooperation of DESY and Universität Hamburg): Throughout my time as a PhD student at DESY, I profited from the high level of expertise and the simulating environment on the DESY campus. I enjoyed the inspiring working atmosphere in the DESY Theory Group and the collaboration with excellent researcher from all over the world. PIER supported my research activities in various ways, for example by offering soft skill courses, scientific and career workshops that were designed particularly for PhD students and from which I learnt a lot! Besides, as a member of the PhD representatives DOIT, I always appreciated the great support we got from PIER for organizing outreach, interdisciplinary and social events for PhD students, e.g. job seminars with former DESY employees, breakfast meetings with renowned researchers or social hours to bring the PhD students at DESY together. The PIER team has always played a big part in making the DESY campus such an international, open-minded and lively place and I am very grateful for the fantastic time, the support and the friendship I experienced at DESY due to this!

My personal advice for all PhD students: Participate in the various activities that PIER offers for you! You will rarely find such a variety of qualification courses in any other place and you can only benefit from it! Also get in touch with the PhD representatives DOIT and become an active part of the lively community on the DESY campus!
