Offers for a good start

Doctorate course: The doctoral course is not only aimed at doctoral students who are at the beginning of a doctorate or are looking for a topic for their dissertation or term paper. Advanced doctoral candidates can also structure their project once again and receive advice on how to write their thesis.

Introductory events for new PhD students: In cooperation with the faculties, the Center for Junior Scholars at Technische Universität Berlin organizes annual introductory events for new doctoral candidates (and postdocs). In addition to networking, formal questions about doctoral registration are answered and the most important contacts are introduced, from doctoral offices and faculty service centers to doctoral advisors and representatives on academic committees.

Managing your Doctoral Project: The participants learn the basics of project management as it is commonly used in business and science - this course therefore represents a general introduction to this topic. At the same time, the fo-cus of the course will be on the particularities that need to be taken into account when planning a doc-torate. The techniques covered will be practiced on the participants’ individual doctoral cases. As a re-sult, they create a plan for their (remaining) doctoral time and learn how to utilize it. Instead of present-ing golden rules, the advantages and disadvantages of different project management procedures will be explained. Participants are encouraged to contribute their own preferences and experiences and to vary the techniques presented.

Starting your procect with success: Project management for doctoral researchers: Participants will explore project planning and how to break down the enormous task of a PhD project into manageable parts. In interactive activities with colleagues, they will discover how to use project management strategies to achieve goals while maintaining motivation and a healthy work-life balance.
