This year's PIER Graduate Week takes place from 23- 26 September 2019 in the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science.

The graduate week's main objective is to introduce PhD students to the neighbouring PIER research fields of Particle & Astroparticle Physics, Nanoscience, Photon Science, Infection & Structural Biology. Both national and international experts offer stimulating lectures, discussion and workshops. Young scientists, including PhD and MSc students and postdocs on Bahrenfeld campus will have the opportunity to broaden their interdisciplinary understanding and interchange with their colleagues from other research fields.

A scientific colloquium, an industry lecture and a number of research and career skills workshops complement the programme. During the graduate week, joint coffee breaks, lunches and get-togethers provide great opportunities for informal discussions, exchange of ideas, socialising and fun. Registration is open from 1 July - 1 September 2019.

Introductory and focus courses
Each course is a consecutive four-day series of mini lectures. The introductory courses are designed for doctoral candidates who would like to learn more about a related research field. The focus courses are for those interested in in-depth sessions in their own area of expertise.

Extras: Colloquium, industry talk and soft skills training
The scientific colloquium is a talk given by a high profile speaker, who provides an overview of one of the research areas of PIER. In the industry talk, "practicioners" from the world of business or industry share their experience with the world outside academia. Complementary soft skills workshops combine short lectures with practical exercises and homework. Please note: The places for the soft skills workshops are limited.
