Senckenberg Research


Young Scientists Events

A number of events are held for the young scientists of the SGN. These range from further education seminars, which are run by professional leaders, to internal PhD student seminars and the regular PhD student gatherings. The biggest event is the annual Retreat of the Young Scientists, which started in Wilhelmshaven in 2008 and takes place alternating in Frankfurt and the other Senckenberg institutes in Germany.

The YS Retreat is an important and big YS event for all young researchers as well as PhD candidates and offers you numerous great opportunities:

  • To see and to be seen! Oral or poster presentations of actual research, PhD works or (planned) projects, to present yourself and see what others are doing.

  • Get deeper into Senckenberg! Learn more about the structure and processes within SGN and talk or discuss with the members of the board of directory.

  • Benefit from the Senckenberg network! Get to know new (young) scientists, share information and benefit from new collaborations or from the experiences of others.

  • See new places! Get out of your institute´, see different SGN institutes and learn more about their research fields, facilities and staff. 

  • Learn and improve yourself! Invited guests or other SGN senior researchers give talks about YS specific topics, e.g. mentoring, funding.

  • Join us and participate! We are looking forward for interesting and inspiring discussions, your opinion, sharing your experiences as well as your your support and commitment for the Young Scientists to move something within Senckenberg.
