March 06, 2023 Ι The opening ceremony of the Water Graduate School at the University of Duisburg Essen will take place on 22.03.2023 from 09:00 – 17:00.
The Water Graduate School
The aim of the Water Graduate School is to create a comprehensive structured program for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in water research at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The Water Graduate School is located in the ZWU and in the profile focus „Water Research“. Thus, the Water Graduate School will be open to all doctoral and postdoctoral researchers working on water-related research topics.
In addition to the overall topic „water“, all members will be divided into three different core arears of research depending on their research topic (water quality; urban water cycle; or biodiversity), which will allow specific offers based on the topic (e.g., workshops, summerschools etc.). All postdoctoral researchers also have the option to choose a so-called „focus“ (supervision; teaching; or project management) in order to be optimally prepared for their further career path through special offers (e.g., soft skill workshops, mentoring, etc.).
This structures will be based on a „training program“ and will include an (interdisciplinary) supervisory team consisting of two academic mentors and one non-academic mentor. All members will have access to and benefit from the excellent network of the ZWU. Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers interested in becoming a member of the Water Graduate School can contact Dr. Vanessa Kramer for further information.To the registration
