Course Description

The professional life of a scientist is more than doing research. The goal of the course is to give students some practical knowledge about professional aspects of activities related to the academic career. From writing a research proposal to the preparation of the thesis, from composing a presentation to the job application, from structuring research to writing a research paper and carrying out the “fight” with the reviewers – all these activities need a lot of professional knowledge and tricks While much of these can be acquired by “learning by doing”, a well-prepared young scientist has considerable advantage and more chances of success. The course will be organized in an interactive, seminar-type manner where students will be invited to contribute to the course with presentations.
