The Doctoral Student Seminar (DOSE)

Doctoral student seminars offer a platform for EVEREST students to discuss their projects, scientific approaches and career plans in an informal atmosphere. Students take turns in hosting the seminar, offering hands-on practical insights or 'behind-the-scences' tours to core facilities and collections to let their fellow students delve into their scientific methods, challenges of field or lab work, or perspectives for data analysis.

The seminar always starts at 5:15 p.m, and concludes with joint snacks and drinks..

Host take care that the attendance sheet is signed by all participants and soon submitted to the EVEREST coordinators.
