Description

Scientist must structure their everyday work with high degrees of self-sufficiency and autonomy, right from the outset of their careers. Individual work steps typically require long-term commitment and are quite complex – test series in the lab are based on a fixed time schedule, a paper is not written within one day and a careful preparation of an oral presentation takes often longer than intended. However, external control, for example by supervisors, is often only executed when it is almost too late. At the same time, distractions are numerous (e.g., short-time interruptions by colleagues and students, or short escapes to Google and YouTube).

Objective

In this seminar, you learn to structure and control yourself, your time, your motivation and your workflow. We particularly address the specific characteristics and requirements of your everyday research environment.
