At UFZ since

March 2017

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I studied urban ecology before at the Technical University Berlin and saw the notice for the PhD position at the blackboard in my faculty. I knew the UFZ before, because I read several studies from researchers from UFZ.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

When I read the description for the PhD I thought that they are looking for me, because the expected profile and skills where exactly what I studied and wrote my Master thesis about. So I applied 2 days before the deadline, went to the interview and then one week later I already got the acceptance.
