The Doctoral Supervisor Training offers support for the supervision of doctoral candidates on an academic and personal level. In cooperation with qualified trainers, various aspects of supervision, such as my role as a supervisor, leadership through communication, mental health, etc., are examined with best-practice examples in individual sessions. The training will provide you with a holistic overview of how you can best support your doctoral researchers from recruiting to career development. 

Through the cooperation with scientists from different fields and institutions, the offer also provides a platform for professional exchange. 

The jointly developed training is aimed specifically at professors, junior research group leaders and postdocs at TUM, the two Max Planck Institutes of Biochemistry and for Biological Intelligence i.f. and Helmholtz Munich.

The structured program consists of eight modules taking place between October and December 2022. The kick-off (October 26, 1pm-6pm) as well as the conclusion of the training (December 15, 9am-1pm) are designed in a face-to-face format, while the other six content modules take place online via zoom (October 27 (9am-1pm), November 10 (9am-1pm), November 17 (9am-1pm), November 24 (9am-1pm), December 1 (9am-1pm), December 8 (9am-1pm)). The modules are linked by an exchange of experiences and practical applications.
