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 novelty is the voluntary PhD colloquium, organized by SMiP PhD candidates.

IOPS SMiP Summer Retreat 2022

The IOPS SMiP Summer Retreat 2022 will take place in Leuven (Belgium) on 23 & 24 June 2022 and will be organized by IOPS. More information can be found on the official website.

Regular SMiP Gathering

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

The next gathering is scheduled for Monday, 07 February 2022 (starting at 7 pm).

Voluntary PhD Candidates' Colloquium

This semester is the first time there will be a voluntary biweekly colloquium among PhD Candidates. The purpose of this PhD Colloquium is mutual support and opportunity for cooperation – across SMiP locations and despite restrictions due to Covid-19.

Open Days 2022 (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.

Career options after the doctorate

In the initial session Thorsten Meiser will give an overview on potential career paths, while in the subsequent sessions practitioner from different work areas will report on their individual experiences.

More information on that Coaching measure can be found here.

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.
