Poster 45. GradDays 45. Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days in autumn 2020

The 45th Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days of the Heidelberg Graduate School for Physics and the Department of Physics and Astronomy take place from 5th - 9th October 2020. Participants from other universities are very welcome!
Courses are open for advanced students, in particular those working on their Master's and doctoral theses. It is the aim to offer courses that broaden the students' physics knowledge as well as to teach specialized techniques.

To take part in the 45th Graduate Days please register yourself here.

Last edition of the Science Pub Quiz on July 29th, 2020

Back and live with limited places!

6th SCIENCE PUB QUIZ IN HEIDELBERG Date: Wednesday, 29 July 2020
Time: 07:30pm (doors open at 7pm)
Venue: Cafe Leitstelle at Dezernat #16
Organizers: Dennis Schulz and Lisa Ringena (both PhD students at Kirchhoff Institute for Physics, Heidelberg).
For the upcoming Science Pub Quiz in Heidelberg will be back in real life! The last edition before the summer break has a total of 40 spots in a well-aired Cafe Leitstelle available for you. As usual, we will ask you sciency questions, a vegetable or fruit might be thrown in water, and we have a wonderful guest: Linn Voss will join us from Berlin, where she does her PhD on toxicology at the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment.
Entrance is free, doors open at 7pm, and questions will be asked both in English and German - and while we welcome all nerds Heidelberg, it will absolutely not be necessary to have studied any science to answer our questions.

Due to the current situation, you have to pre-register via email to sciencepubquiz@posteo.de with your name and, if you'd like to participate in a team, the names of your team members.

Event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/163768071730688.

STRUCTURES JOUR FIXE: Heidelberg, Online Seminar.

Friday, July 24th, 2020.

'Almost a PhD' lecture Series.

Upcoming talk: Monday, July 20, 18:15, Linda Shen: Universelle Dynamik & Thermalisierung in isolierten Quantensystemen.
The talk will be in German this time, as this will be the language of Linda's defence.

About the 'Almost a PhD' lecture series:
In the 'almost a PhD' talks, PhD students shortly before their defence can practice their PhD talk. The presentation will be followed by questions and if wanted a short round of feedback. In this format PhD candidates benefit by practising their talk in front of a live audience and listeners are presented with understandable and hopefully high quality talks about a broad variety of current research topics. And if you are currently in your PhD yourself, you can collect ideas for your own talk in the future!
After the talk is finished and all questions are answered we would love to invite everyone to a virtual get-together. Grab a beer or snacks in front of your computer and have an informal discussion or chat.
If your defence is coming up and you are keen to practice your talk yourself, write us a mail with your topic and your preferred date. We will supply you with a 'drawing pad' that can be connected to a computer, to simulate an actual blackboard presentation. Speakers can borrow one of these pads and use it for their talk.
