PhD Café

The PhD Café is an initiative of the Center for Doctoral Studies for national and international PhD students (postdocs are of course also very welcomed to join). Doctoral candidates can exchange views on the challenges a new country/town/university can present, meet colleagues, extend their network or just have a nice evening with other PhD students.  

The PhD Café takes place every two months.

Next PhD Café

Date: in April (date and location will be announced soon)


Interdisciplinary work is, paradoxically, often a lonely undertaking - those who are active in different disciplines, can quickly find themselves "on the fence" as they say. We are a diverse group of scholars working in and between philosophy, archaeology, anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, history, physics, mathematics, geology and biology.

With the Interdisziplinaritäts-Café we are hoping to create an informal forum for scholars of and between all disciplines to help facilitate the exchange of experiences and foster contacts with other scholars open to potential collaboration.
