At UFZ since

How did you learn about the UFZ?

From the internet

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Mainly for the fact that the topic of my PhD perfectly matched my scientific interest and the UFZ offered very good working conditions

What do you like about the city you live in?

I very much like the UFZ location for its friendly atmosphere and the small size and Magdeburg for its nice parks and nature

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

HIGRADE gives great opportunties to expand the horizon and strenghten skills important for the PhD period and the time ahead. Also it motivates to find the time for doing things apart from directly PhD related work.
