IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Thursday 1st - Friday 2nd December 2022

Location: Small Lecture Hall, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Kai Hüwelmeyer

Description: Scientists have to give arguments in many different contexts: in their publications, in grant applications, in lab meetings and in conference presentations. Nevertheless, the bases for strong and correct arguments are not always fully clear to them. Logic provides extremely helpful tools for scientists to develop their arguments in a coherent, well-structured and convincing way. The seminar gives an introduction to the most important concepts of logic: premises and conclusions of arguments, validity and soundness of arguments, deductive vs. inductive reasoning, common types of inferences and fallacies.

The idea of the seminar is to use these concepts as a toolbox which provides very useful techniques for everyday scientific work. The participants learn how to reconstruct arguments from scientific texts, how to give well-structured and logically valid arguments, and how to avoid misunderstandings. There are two main sets of exercises: one for written argumentation and one for oral argumentation.

Contents:

  • basic concepts of logic (validity and soundness of arguments etc.)

  • inductive and deductive arguments

  • common types of fallacies

  • reconstructing arguments from texts

  • tips and exercises for written argumentation

  • tips and exercises for oral argumentation

IMPRS-LS Seminar

 

Date:     Thursday 8th December 2022         

Location:  MPI of Biochemistry, T-building  |  closed event, open only for IMPRS-LS 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.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Friday 9th - Saturday 10th December and Thursday 15th or Friday 16th December 2022

Location: Small Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: In the Career Mentoring and Management: Applying for Jobs on the Wider Market workshop, you will receive comprehensive career mentoring about the wealth of alternative career paths that are open to you as well as advice on how to best find and access these jobs. You will also be armed with key communication skills that will prove to be a prerequisite for career success on the wider market. You will be given advice on how to optimally build your CV and resumé as well as on how to write convincing personal career mission statements and strong core competencies summaries that will be attractive to a wide range of future employers. You will also learn how to best present your skills and talents in attention-grabbing application letters. Finally, we will role play questions that regularly come up during interviews to ensure that you gain the competitive edge over other application candidates.


 

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Monday 12th- Tuesday 13th December 2022

Location: Small Lecture Hall, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: Knowing how to design a well-structured, visually attractive poster is a must for every researcher. However, due to insufficient know-how and inexperience, you may fail to get your message across and also not present your poster optimally.

To overcome these problems, the Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop focuses on the key dos and don’ts of strong poster design using your own poster as material. In addition, you will be coached on how to effectively make your key points and convey your message as well as on how to make the best impression on interested parties. This workshop will, therefore, enable you not only to design and present a poster competently but also to represent yourself and your Institute more professionally.
The Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop is ideal for early-stage research scientists with no or little poster designing and presenting experience.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Monday 6th - Tuesday 7th March 2023

Location:  TBA

Trainer: Andreas Binder

Description: This two-day workshop is „hands-on“, i.e. you will directly practice the course contents at the computer during the workshop. It will start from scratch and teach you the basics of vector graphics until you will be able to draw your own schematics and data figures. The trainer can flexibly adapt to your needs if you would like to have special topics covered. It can also include basics of Adobe Photoshop. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to apply your new skills to create and design advanced graphics and data representations for talks, posters, and your publications.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

Date: Monday 3rd - Wednesday 5th April 2023

Location: Small Lecture Hall, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

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.
