How did you learn about the UFZ?

During my studies in Leipzig I did an internship here. We had lectures by PD’s from the UFZ.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Interesting research topics and possibilities for further qualification

What do you like about the city you live in?

I like Leipzig because of its short ways, beautiful parks, nice people and evening activities

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

Working at the UFZ makes a lot of fun and is really exciting. As I just started my work here, I didn’t have the possibility to join a HIGRADE lecture so far. But the possible lectures seem quite interesting.
