last week…


…I organised a workshop of the DFG Nachwuchsakademie OFFSPRing (“OFFering Scientific Perspectives in Reproduction”), hosted at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) here in Bielefeld. Over one-and-a-half days, we focussed on developing writing skills for scientific publications and research proposals, and discussed funding strategies with experienced researchers in the field. Many thanks to the staff of the ZiF for providing a superb environment for the workshop, to the lead instructors Con Mallidis (CeRA, Münster) and Brian Cusack (Science Craft, Berlin), to the researchers who gave up their time to discuss funding with us (main OFFSPRing coordinator Stefan Schlatt, plus Emmy Noether group leaders Claudia Fricke & Holger Schielzeth) and to everyone attending for their active and enthusiastic participation!
