How did you learn about the UFZ?

I recognized the existence of the UFZ in my childhood, because the UFZ building in Magdeburg is located on my way to high school

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I wrote my bachelor and my master thesis at the UFZ. The interesting research topics and the excellent labour conditions motivated me to apply for a vacant PhD position.

What do you like about the city you live in?

The relatively low rent and throbbing nightlife are making Leipzig an attractive place for me to live here. Furthermore, I like the large recreational areas such as Lake Cospudener.

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

UFZ: Inspiring working atmosphere and academic exchange opportunities with international researchers HIGRADE: A lot of good and informative courses and excursions!
