To make my PhD in a very interdisziplinary surrounding and use the good research facilities and connections at the UFZ. Furthermore, the UFZ has a good name as scientific institution so that I hope to improve my personal development.
Although it is a relative big city, everywhere you can find vegetation and relaxation areas. Another positive point is that you have a very compact city centre with, in my opinion, a very pleasant shop structure. Also, leipzig is a growing city with lots of young people so that you can find a big amount of interesting acquaintances.
Up to now I don't know everything because I am here for just a month. But what I have seen so far, I think it is a very enjoyable working atmosphere. Additionally, it is very exciting to get insight in different research disciplines.
I was born on February 11, 1991 in Werdau a small town in the southwest of saxony. Towards school I began my meteorology studies at the university of leipzig until the master thesis. After finishing, at the beginning of 2015, I worked as scientific assistant at SUSOZ and made an application for a DBU scholarship which I achieved succesfully. Therefore my PhD studies have been starting since august 2015.
