Special Events at the SMiP group

In addition to the regular qualification program, the SMiP group organizes special events that are listed on this page.

Coping with the ongoing pandemia, we initiated several special offers within the SMiP group, i.e. Digital PI Consultation Hours (on demand) and informal SMiP gatherings after work. A special project in spring 2021 was the February of Failures initiative. Additionally, the SMiP equal opportunities committee invited Stefan Diestel (University of Wuppertal) to give a short workshop on self-regulation. In fall 2021, we started a new project, i.e. a talk series on career options after the doctorate. Another offer is the voluntary PhD colloquium, organized by SMiP PhD candidates.

In fall 2022, we will continue the successfull event series “Career Options after the Doctorate”.

Career options after the doctorate

In each session, two practitioners from different work areas will report on their individual experiences and are happy to answer the participants' questions.

More information on that Coaching measure can be found here.

Open Days 2023 (for female Master students)

SMiP organizes an open-day event and consultation offers for female master students of psychology. Participants are invited to get in touch with representatives of the SMiP group, ask questions and see for themselves, what the group has to offer to prospective PhD Candidates.

More information will be available soon.

Digital PI Consultation Hours

Considering the restricted travel possibilities and the reduced room for informal interactions during digital events, the SMiP group decided to facilitate the PhD Candidates' contact with their co-advisors and other SMiP PIs digitally. The consultation hours are scheduled via the coordinating center.

SMiP IOPS Summer School 2023

The first SMiP IOPS Summer School will take place at the University of Mannheim from 26 to 30 June 2023. More information will be available soon.

In addition to the formal teaching events, this regular gathering allows for informal after work meetings – on the first Monday of every month.
