Young scientists meet at PIK: What comes after a PhD?

Young scientist from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) discussed their working routines and career perspectives with regard to their doctorate. Once a year the “PhD-Day” offers the opportunity to meet up in the whole group of PhD candidates to share experiences, talk about research projects and train in science related skills. The focus of the current meeting was on possible career steps following the doctoral thesis.

“Talented young researchers play a vital role in our institute’s scientific culture”, Ingo Bräuer explains as the head of science coordination. “Currently about 84 students from 18 countries are working on their doctorate at PIK”. The PhD-Day also included talks from an alumni perspective, given by former PhD candidates, who shared their views and experiences on their doctorates and first steps in their scientific careers. “The young scientists also had the chance to train in small groups – from techniques of data visualization to the new high performance computer or scientific writing”, says Christine von Bloh, who coordinates the PhD programme at PIK.
