  • 25.10.2018: "Social Media"

    For scientists, social media can be a fantastic medium for promoting their work, networking with colleagues and publicly engaging in debates. However, social media also poses challenging questions about how to engage and present yourself professionally or whether digital exposure can also do harm. Will it eventually become compulsive in order to pursue an academic career?
    The event was organized by the Peer Mentoring Group Career Elixier in cooperation with Graduate Campus. The event took place in English.

  • 12.04.2018: "How to get European Funding"

  • 27.10.2017: "Mobility"
    We have been dealing with the pros and cons of mobility for some time now – among other things it was the focus of our 2016 GRC Annual Ceremony, and the range of feedback has motivated us to plan a discussion forum for doctoral candidates and postdocs: at this Meet Up there were 4 discussion groups on various aspects of mobility, such as mobility and family or double career, among others. These groups were moderated by a junior or senior researcher, and Graduate Campus ensured that the most important content for a follow-up with the SNSF was documented.
