How did you learn about the UFZ?

During my studies at Martin-Luther-University I heard about the UFZ and their research

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I knew that the UFZ can provide best and reliable conditions for great research, so that a vacant PhD position made me apply for this job

What do you like about the city you live in?

Compared to other university cities, Halle is not too big and very relaxed. Furthermore, Halle provides the same cultural activities as everywhere else.

How do you like it at the UFZ / in HIGRADE?

The UFZ looks like a fantastic spot to start a successful carrier providing the opportunities for self-realisation. The HIGRADE programme, therefore, offers me best conditions to improve my personal skills and specifications.
