Group talk situation in a DIPP Ask the Expert session

The DIPP Studreps invite you to another Ask the Expert session, discussing Scientists working in administrative positions. Could this be a career path for you? No matter your answer is Yes or I’m not sure – do join us on Tuesday February 7 at 6 pm at the MPI-CBG Galleria.

To address the topic, we invited an excellent panel of experts:

  • Dr. Ivan C. Baines (MPI-CBG)
  • Dr. Arantxa Sánchez Fernández (DIGS-BB)
  • Prof. Dr. Patricia Ruiz Noppinger (TU Dresden)
  • Dr. Barbara Könczöl (TU Dresden)

After a round of short presentations (5 min) by our experts, you will be given the opportunity to discuss your questions with them (in small groups of 5) in a round table-like atmosphere. The evening will be concluded by a beer-hour style session where you can talk to your favorite expert in greater detail while having some snacks and drinks.

Interested DIPP PhD students can sign up by writing an email to by 30 January. Places are limited to 20 participants.
