ZefiS Mentoring

The ZefiS supports its members who are currently in their qualification phase (grad students or postdocs). Therefore, the directors offer regular mentorings. So far, topics were:

  • Analysis of potential and career planning
  • Tenure procedures; third party funding; time management; options for postdocs 
  • How to write a PhD thesis (formalities, style, own contribution to the state of research, how to begin, own strenghts and weaknesses)
  • For grad students: Working on specific writing/structural problems of PhD theses; participants will work with examples from actual dissertations.
  • For postdocs (but not exclusively): Third party funding (advanced session)
