Worried about feeding yourself once you're done with your PhD? Chrystalleni Vassiliou shares four steps that will help you find your ideal job and (hopefully) get hired.
Spring is coming, but so is a health hazard. Here is one thing to do in Göttingen and four things to do at home this March.
With Christmas far behind and Easter well ahead, we need to be a little bit more active in taking a break. And who says you have to leave the University walls to enjoy your free time? This February, take advantage of all the things that Göttingen University has to offer, including tours, museums, and the 3-minute-thesis competition :)
Christmas market season is upon us. There is really no need to elaborate, just an excuse to rave about Glühwein and post pretty pictures :)
November is Jazz month in Göttingen! Grab your friends and your dancing shows and enjoy live performances and events all over the city. And when you're not out jazzing, you can start building up your cold tolerance for the event we anticipate all year starting on the last weekend of the month - the Christmas Market :D
If you're struggling to keep up to date with scientific literature and sick of being flooded with email updates from dozens of journals, join me and switch to using an RSS reader. It's simple, tidy and takes about 15 minutes to set up.
Venture outside of Göttingen this October and explore the surroundings! With two holidays this month, you can make long weekend trips and enjoy Niedersachsen in all its glory. All you need is an umbrella and your student card.
Summer is still around, and maybe so are you. Ronja Markworth shares things to do in Göttingen in September and the theme is 'get creative'. Also, make sure to be around for the Gänseliesel fest and Genuss Meile on the last weekend of the month!
Many of us researchers are enticed by the idea of working in data science. More and more new opportunities are cropping up for applying our hard-earned scientific knowledge to problems that people are willing to pay to solve. Pascal Hecker, a former Neuroscience student from Göttingen, talks about his journey from academia to industry to a combination of both at audEERING - a company that uses machine learning to dissect voice patterns as markers for neurodegenerative diseases.
If (like us) you're spending your August in the city, make sure to take advantage of all of the summer-themed happenings coming up this month. Enjoy music and movies in the open air, a (rubber) duck race and more. Don't count your scoops of ice cream and make sure to eat them all outside the lab ;)
