PhD Retreat 2021


Online conference

CEITEC PhD committee is ready to announce the next PhD Retreat! This year we decided to meet on an online platform to follow the Covid-19 restrictions, which we tried to compensate with a lot of interesting workshops and networking. You will get a chance to learn how to plan your career, what it takes to make career in academic, business, public, or third sector and how improve your time management skills to go through your PhD studies with minimal stress or anxiety. Besides useful courses, you may broaden your network of professional contacts, get advice from specialists or ask whatever might be interesting for you. Although there is a limited number of speakers, we would like to encourage you to submit an abstract for your flash talkThe best flash talk will be rewarded!

Retreat 2021 is joined with students from our partner institutes from the Twinning project - EMBL, University of Edinburgh, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Institute of Molecular Biology Mainz.
