IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Monday 23rd - Tuesday 24th September 2019 

Location: S45, IT training room, MPI of Biochemistry

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: Wednesday 25th - Friday 27th September 2019 

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

Trainer: Rick Scavetta

Description: This workshop enables life scientists to effectively and rapidly analyse their data using the R software package.

Participants learn how to:

  • operate R using variables, functions, indexing, and packages.
  • import their own data regardless of size or format.
  • perform standard statistical tests on large data-sets.
  • produce plots and highlight specific data-points.
  • begin programming in R using the apply functions.
  • use split-combine-apply strategies for calculations and data manipulation.
  • begin to adopt a bioinformatician’s perspective.

Career Symposium

 

The InPharma Career Symposium will take place at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry on 15. - 16. October 2019.

This career event aims to amalgamate pharmaceutical industry and academia enriching both the sectors with an experience that would help each one to find the best fit.

InPharma is a platform founded at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in 2015. The aim of InPharma is to promote the flow of expertise from academia to industry. The InPharma career conferences pursue this aim by introducing the landscape of job perspectives in pharmaceutical and biotech companies to young life scientists from the Munich area.

InPharma has established fruitful partnerships with the IZB (Innovation and Start-Up Center for Biotechnology) and five Graduate Schools from the Munich area, as well as with DGPharMed.

Join us and get inspired by learning from the experience of young entrepreneurs and representatives from the industrial sector about the scope of advancement and development in the field of healthcare industry and biotechnology.   

 

Highlights of InPharma

1. Talks from former life scientists

2. Developing professional contacts through mingling and lunch with speakers

3. Job opportunities for non-German speakers

4. Learn more about companies at their booths

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Thursday 17th - Friday 18th October 2019

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

Trainer: Rick Scavetta

Description: This two-day workshop enables life scientists to effectively create figures based on quantitative data that add impact to their publications. The workshop is divided into two one-day modules: Principles and Applications.

Participants learn how to:

  • use figures and tables to effectively tell the story of their research.
  • decide whether text, tables, or plots are most appropriate to convey the message of each result.
  • choose the most appropriate plot type for their data.
  • understand the science of perception and apply design principles to communicate their message clearly.
  • use aesthetics to relate sensory attributes (color, shape, etc.) to abstractions (enrichment, change-over-time).
  • distinguish between graphics for publication and for data exploration.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Monday 4th - Tuesday 5th November 2019

Location: L25/26, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Sabine Walter & Greta Wonneberger

Description: Quite commonly it is not the person who works hard or has exceptional grades who gets ahead professionally; rather, it is the person who markets themselves the best. This is not only a frustrating situation for the deserving employee, but is also detrimental to the company and the organization as top talent is overlooked.

At the end of this workshop, you will know your strengths and talents and consider them resources. You will be able to clearly communicate your goals. You will stand by what you say and will be able to convey your goals and opinions convincingly. You will have a clearer plan for your professional future and understand how to use  networking to further your goals.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 
Date: Friday 8th - Saturday 9th November with follow-up on Friday 15rd or Saturday 16th November 2019

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

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 11th - Tuesday 12th November 2019

Location: Small Conference Room, 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 18th - Tuesday 19th November 2019

Trainer: Andreas Kist

Description: Programming is a highly desirable and applicable skill in science. With the open source and universal programming language Python, you can acquire, analyze, and present your data easily without leaving one programming environment. In this introductory course, students will learn how to write small Python scripts using Jupyter notebooks. We will cover why Python is an ideal programming language to learn, the Python syntax, data types, conditional statements, loops and file I/O. We glance at scientific Python packages and version control.
