Schedule for Core Seminar Week on "Functional Genomics and Paleogenomics"

The schedule for the Core Seminar Week on "Functional Genomics and Paleogenomics" can be downloaded here.

Prospectives: Becoming a Post-Doc

"Prospectives" is a series that explores future career options in academia and beyond. Becoming a Post-Doc is the first issue of that series, taking place on June 26 at 1 pm. Dieter Lukas, Alexander Otte, and Sabrina Walter will provide you with an overview of possibilities for continuing your research career after you have received your PhD by pointing out which basic grant programmes are available and what are the first steps.
The event is intended for Early Career Researchers at all levels. Please register writing an e-mail to Sabrina Walter.
