Courses and Trainings for Doctoral Students and Postdocs

We are offering several courses and training opportunities throughout the year. The schedules are announced in advance in the monthly Graduate Academy Newsletter. You are invited to send us your suggestions for new topics.

In order to register, please, refer to Barbara Witter:

The courses take place during one or two days, full time, usually from 9 AM to 5 PM. When you register, please make sure you organise your personal agenda accordinly and have plenty of time to attend the whole programme: that is not only a matter of respect for the trainer, but it also enables you to get the most from the courses.
