IMPRS-LS Workshop

Date: Friday 16th - Saturday 17th June with follow-up on Friday 23rd or Saturday 24th June

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description:  Do you want to get your own research fellowship but don’t know how to get started? The Getting Funded Workshop addresses the needs of PhD students wanting to apply for funding for their first postdoctoral position. Together we will explore what makes a research idea fundable and a research proposal reviewer friendly. Strategies on how best to present your research idea and yourself will be discussed. You will also be given the tools and the vocabulary to better write your research plan as well as sections not encountered at the paper writing stage, such as justifying choice of lab, projecting your future career aims and promoting yourself as the ideal researcher for the job. Finally, grant scouting information and tips will be provided about major funding sources both in Europe and the USA.


IMPRS-LS Workshop

Date: Monday 19th - Wednesday 21st June 2017

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: Do you have data to publish, but keep putting off writing that paper because you don’t know where to begin?

How to get started and keep going as well as what goes where and in which tense will be the starting point of this workshop. We will also review key scientific sentence structures as well as strategies to keep your text concise and precise. Issues such as how to create flow and generate the correct level of emphasis will also be discussed. Together we will explore how to make scientific writing understandable and readable and begin the process of integrating these factors into your own scientific writing style. Finally, we will formulate a plan on how you can improve your scientific vocabulary and writing style for future writing tasks. The Scientific Writing Workshop is ideal for non-native English-speaking early stage research scientists



IMPRS-LS Seminar


Date: Tuesday 11th July 2017

Location: Small lecture hall, T-building, 1st floor, MPIB   | closed event, open only for IMPRS students

The IMPRS-LS Seminar is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their innovative research to their peers in a friendly environment. IMPRS-LS students will have the chance to present their projects in either talk or poster format.

Our poster sessions provide the perfect opportunity for IMPRS-LS students to network with colleagues and discuss their most recent findings. Students additionally have the chance to vote for their favorite talk and poster, with the winners from each category being announced at the end of the seminar.

The IMPRS-LS seminar will conclude with our annual "IMPRS-LS Summer BBQ", refreshments will be provided. We look forwards to welcoming all IMPRS-LS students!


IMPRS-LS Workshop

Date: Wednesday 12th - Friday 14th July 2017

Trainer: Jan Brocher

Description: The workshop aims to teach scientists from different areas how to handle and process digital images starting from image acquisition on until the incorporation into the final publication figure. This includes important theory about high quality digital images in general as well as a broad spectrum of methods for correct image processing and specific analytical purposes according to high scientific standards. You will learn how to extract most information from your images and how to quantify regions of interest.


IMPRS-LS Workshop

Date: Monday 17th - Tuesday 18th July 2017

Trainer: Ulrich Weilnhammer

Description:  Progress in science is based on Intellectual disagreement, however using this approach in our working and personal lives will sometimes lead to conflict. In a science community like ours there are often different sources of and reasons for conflict to arise. Successful collaboration in science and at the workplace is key to professional growth and development. This is why conflict resolution skills are so essential.

What you will get from the 2 day program
- self-awareness and confidence in your own ability to avoid and handle situations that could cause conflicts
- the ability to stay calm and work through a conflict situation in an appropriate manner
- the ability to understand other peoples personal and cultural triggers, while being able to manage and resolve conflict within a team situation
