Within the next months I will move to Leipzig. Leipzig is a very nice city with many parks, bars/restaurants, clubs and lakes. In the evening one will always find a good place to rest and to have fun.

HIGRADE offers many good courses to expand one's horizons and to get in touch with other doctoral students. The UFZ offers a nice working place with a good working environment and many different research fields.
