COURSES AND WORKSHOPS IN TRANSFERABLE SKILLS, SCIENCTIFIC COURSES
The RTG will organize scientific workshops that are specifically tailored for the demands of our doctoral candidates. These include project-related courses in imaging and image analysis, proteomics, bioinformatics and peptide chemistry/small molecule design. We aim to offer these courses as a combined 2-week block course in the middle of the first year of the PhD composed of 2-day courses (except for bioinformatics, which will last 4 days). Internal and external speakers will thereby provide a broad overview over techniques and approaches. With these courses, the doctoral candidates will not be trained hands-on (which is unrealistic given the short timeframe), but they will be equipped with a basic understanding of the diverse methods, their applications and pitfalls, and their availability on campus. Meeting external speakers will furthermore ensure that our doctoral candidates can extend their scientific networks.
