Hertha Sponer College Lecture Series

Especially dedicated to early career researchers, the Hertha Sponer College Lecture Series provides a general overview about the goals of the six MBExC research alliances, and the special techniques that are developed, refined and applied in a certain context. The lecture series is an open format predominately dedicated to Phd-students and postdocs but also accessible for all interested persons at the Göttingen Campus and beyond.

The lecture series takes place every other Wednesday at 5 pm during the lecture period of the respective semester. Child care opportunities for MBExC members and Hertha Sponer Collegians will be provided upon request. Active participation of the HSC collegians in all lectures is expected.

Collegians will have the opportunity to subsequently join the Hertha Sponer College Social "Meet the PI", aiming on scientific and personal exchange with the lecturer, as well as networking between collegians and with other MBExC members.

Schedule WiSe20/21

Wednesdays, 5 pm s.t., HSC collegians have the opportunity for a subsequent "Meet-the-PI"
