Promotion of young scientists
WSL currently hosts around 120 PhD candidates and some 60 of them are doing their entire PhD at WSL. We are wholly committed to providing you as a PhD candidate with all the necessary support you need at the beginning of your career. Our offers to young scientists include various courses on statistics, academic writing, research integrity, intra- and interpersonal skills. Furthermore, we organize summer universities and opportunities to present your research and get professional feedback.
In our PhD Club PhD candidates organize various events and activities and provide coaching both in Birmensdorf and in Davos to strengthen the transfer of knowledge among doctoral students and to build a doctoral community at WSL/SLF.
