I learned about the UFZ from internet

Why did you come to the UFZ?

The UFZ is one of the most important environmental research centers in Europe. Moreover, it is a multidisciplinary and international environment where you can grow and improve your scientific and personal skills.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is a very beautiful and interesting city, it has a lot of different parks and green area where you can relax or have a walk. Therefore, you can be in the middle of the city and feel like being in the countryside. Furthermore, it is a great place for moving around by bike!

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

At the UFZ I feel like being a part of an organization that is really trying to have an impact on our planet and on the environment. A topic that nowadays is more important than ever. On the top of that, the UFZ and the HIGRADE are offering vast opportunities to develop yourself in different areas and take part of courses for soft and transferable skills.
