Kick-off Meeting at the Retreat 2019
The event started with a Kick-off meeting for PhDs and Postdocs. For this year’s retreat the PhD/Postdoc initiative has organised a coaching session with the Arc Founder, Astrid Schrader. Driven by the goal of exploring your full potential at work, we took a journey into understanding what we can bring of our personalities to achieve our aims.
Some participants‘ comments:
- “The workshop provided us with a great opportunity to vocalize our wishes, plans and concerns about our future careers in science”
- “I felt I was in a safe place to talk about our own and each other´s current career problems and learned tricks for having a happier work life”
- “It was a good opportunity to meet and discuss with other members of the SFB1129 that have similar issues”.
The workshop “Wissenschaft STIMMIG transportieren – Professionelles Stimm- und Redetraining für Nachwuchswissenschaftlerinnen“ will be held in cooperation with the TRR83 and the SFB1129 in Heidelberg. The goal of this workshop is training of young female scientists to reach their audience during presentations with convincing voice.
The workshop is organized in three one-day sessions:
October 11th 2017: Souverän auftreten – frei sprechen

The trainer Barbara Greese has a long-standing reputation in presentation training with focus on how to use and develop your voice to catch the attention of the audience (http://www.barbaragreese.de/).
ilastik is a simple, user-friendly tool for interactive image classification, segmentation and analysis. It is built as a modular software, which currently has workflows for automated (supervised) pixel- and object-level classification, automated and semi-automated object tracking, semi-automated segmentation and object counting without detection. Using ilastik requires no experience in image processing: we encourage you to join this workshop and bring your own data during the “hands-on” sessions, so you can explore solving your own problem using ilastik on December 4th, 2017 in Mathematikon Building A, PC Pool, 2nd floor room 103.
Please find the program and register for the hands-on sessions.
⟩ Workshop „Scientific Writing“, Sept. 2016
Scientific Writing is an important skill for all academic careers. In order to be effective, research proposals, reports and publications must be informative, precisely formulated and well structured. During this workshop in September 2016, participants dealt with different tasks like developing a proposal, effective dealing with literature, and composing and revising drafts in regard to their own writing project.
Rating for this 2-day workshop was very good and shown here.
