Joint Lecture Week. Topics include fundamental noise in interferometer, interferometry and its advanced techniques, clocks, atom interferometry, astrophysics and earth science. We hosted special courses by scientists from the local university.

2017

Lecture Week 1

Date: April 18-22

Joint Lecture Week. Topics include geodesy, relativity and statistics and data analysis. We hosted a special course on geodesy by a guest lecturer.

Lecture Week 2

June 11-16

Joint Lecture Week. Topics include relativity, geodesy, atom interferometer, satellite designs, gaussian optics, fundamental noise in interferometer, interferometry and its advanced techniques.

Lecture Week 3

Date: September 17-22

Joint Lecture Week. Topics include clocks, atom interferometry, satellite designs, and laser interferometry. We host two special courses by local scientists.

Tag der Promovierende

Date: October 8

Topics range from digital open access publication, collaborative writing and data management solution offered by LUH

Research in international teams

Date: October 23-24

This interactive workshop focuses on laying a foundation for more effective communication in intercultural settings.

Good Scientific Practice

Date: October 23-24

The course follows the DFG policy. The course is offered in German and English (alternating).

Presentation Skills

Date: November 12-13

The workshop aims to improve the skills of participants in giving scientific presentations in English and taking part in professional discussions following their own talks.

Gravity

Date: October 26-December 27

Online course to learn gravity, explore gravitational waves, black holes and the Big Bang.

2016

Scientific Presenting

Date: January 7-8

This workshop uses a mix of practical exercises, discussion and video feedback to help students strengthen their authentic professional voice and support them to get their message across with confidence and clarity.

Communication Skills for Career Development

This training has self-promoting for scientists in focus. Participants will develop a precise idea of their own personal strength and abilities.

Scientific Writing 

Date: February 11-12

The workshop gives students the confidence to begin publishing in the increasingly competitive world of science. Exercise is assigned beforehand, and feedback will be obtained and discussed in one-to-one sessions during the workshop.

Good Scientific Practice 

Date: March 7-8

The course follows the DFG policy. The course is offered in German and English (alternating).

Written Application in Germany

Date: April 6-7

The workshop is tailored for the needs of international students, and provides the foundation and strategies for a written application for a job in Germany and information about online applications.

Research in international teams

Date: April 22-23
