Orientation Week Winter

Orientation Week Winter 2022

The PhD Researchers’ Orientation welcomes all new PhD candidates.

The MDC Graduate School organizes orientation sessions for new MDC doctoral students, presenting both the Campus Buch and Campus Mitte. PhD orientation sessions offer an excellent opportunity to meet new colleagues, learn about the MDC Graduate School, science at the MDC and much more. We will answer all questions that might have come up in the first weeks, and we are looking forward to discussing your suggestions and ideas.

During this 1-week Orientation, we will present:

MDC International PhD Program:  training activities, Graduate School structure, curriculum and credit system, university regulations and more

Data management and scientific computing

Science Communication - introduction to writing and presenting

Open Science, outreach and public engagement

Data Science program, opportunities and partners

Social gatherings


The week will close with the Newbies Symposium 2022.
