How did you learn about the UFZ?

During my studies I took part in some lectures and practical work at the UFZ

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is a very green city. You are never far away of a beautiful park, lake or wood. On the other hand there is a vibrant city centre with nice little bars as well as great historical buildings.

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

As microbiologist who wants to contribute to the research for the environment, the UFZ provides an excellent scientific background and a very good working atmosphere. The HIGRADE program allows us as PhD students to expand our knowledge beside the own research field and additionally offers various trainings for future work.
