What will you retain from EcoMol?

"My highlight of the EcolMol PhD program is the deep bond between the PhD students, who despite the different disciplines but also because of that, learn, work and celebrate together in an exemplary way." (Nils)

The highlight during my PhD was the intensive collaboration on collaborative research approaches and the related exchange and gain of competences in our very interdisciplinary graduate network.” (Corinna)

Mein Highlight des EcolMol Promotionsprogramm ist die tiefe Verbundenheit der Doktoranden, die trotz der unterschiedlichen Disziplinen aber auch aufgrund dessen, beispielhaft miteinander lernen, arbeiten und feiern.” (Nils)

Certainly, some highlights during my PhD within EcoMol were the monthly seminars and workshops at Etelsen and on Spiekeroog Island, which offered a unique opportunity for meaningful discussion and stimulated my scientific curiosity!” (Lars-Erik)
