News #37 // Gender & Diversity Workshop / Call for Workshop Topics / fu:stat Program / Consultation Hours Doctoral Office / Gender, Diversity & Career Development Day / RKI Colloquium / Una Europa Training / Research Data Management




Free spots available in the workshop “Gender and Diversity Competence”

Date: May 30 and 31st, 2022 >> two full days

Trainer: Sabine Lerch - in person

Participants: max. 12 - cost: 200 €

- open to all stages - highly recommended

Overview: In our current society engaging in any form of disrespect or discrimination is, thankfully, officially no longer tolerated. In certain situations you could damage your career with inappropriate behaviour. In this training we will create awareness of the many, often subtle, ways in which persons unfortunately still discriminate against women, certain cultures, sexual preferences, and religions. For both men and women it is crucial to understand where your own prejudices could lie and to be aware of them so that you can avoid potentially serious consequences. If you belong to a group that is sometimes discriminated against, this training will give you advice on how to deal with discrimination and to develop your own strategies for personal empowerment in your career. The training is conducted over 2 full days of short theory lessons, discussions, individual and small-group exercises, plus role-playing exercises with feedback.

For registration please contact: linn.lundvall@charite.de

Consultation hours of the doctoral degree office at Dept. BCP

Ab sofort bieten wir - neben der möglichen telefonischen Beratung an allen Tagen - zusätzlich auch wieder Präsenzsprechstunden an.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass wir das Sprechstundenangebot umstrukturiert und nach Fächern und Sachbearbeiterinnen getrennt haben, d.h. die Sprechstunde für die Fächer Biochemie und Chemie wird durch Frau Lydia Alnajjar abgehalten, die Sprechstunde für die Fächer Biologie und Pharmazie durch Frau Kerstin Reinsberg und zwar an jeweils getrennten Tagen. (Eine gegenseitige Vertretung erfolgt hier nicht, bitte buchen Sie nur Termine bei der jeweiligen Sachbearbeiterin).

Die geplanten Termine finden Sie unter https://www.bcp.fu-berlin.de/graduiertenzentrum/kontakt/promo-habil-buero/index.html.
Am jeweiligen Sprechstundentag können Sie sich eine Stunde vor Sprechstundenbeginn entweder unter https://queue.bcp.fu-berlin.de/index.php?page=entry oder an unseren Terminals im Wartebereich in der Arnimallee 22 einen Termin buchen.

Wir bitten darum auch weiterhin alle Vorgänge elektronisch oder per Post einzureichen bzw. Ihre Unterlagen in den Briefkasten vor unserem Büro einzuwerfen und die Sprechstunde nur für die Vorgänge in Anspruch zu nehmen, die dies tatsächlich erfordern wie z. B. die Vorlage der Originale im Rahmen der Zulassung zur Promotion.

 ******** English Version *********

From now on we offer - in addition to the possible telephone consultation on all days - also presence consultation hours again.

Please note that we have restructured the office hours and separated them according to subjects and administrators, i.e. the office hours for the subjects Biochemistry and Chemistry will be held by Ms. Lydia Alnajjar, the office hours for the subjects Biology and Pharmacy will be held by Ms. Kerstin Reinsberg, each on separate days. (There is no mutual substitution here, please book only appointments with the respective administrator).

You can find the scheduled appointments at https://www.bcp.fu-berlin.de/graduiertenzentrum/kontakt/promo-habil-buero/index.html.  

On the respective consultation day, you can book an appointment one hour before the consultation starts either at https://queue.bcp.fu-berlin.de/index.php?page=entry  or at our terminals in the waiting area at Arnimallee 22.

We ask you to continue to submit all documents electronically or by mail, or to drop them in the mailbox in front of our office, and to use the office hours only for those processes that actually require them, such as the submission of originals for admission to doctoral studies.

The workshops are ment for PhD students, PostDocs & interested persons. You can get credit points for you IRTG curriculum. You are warmly invited!

  • What are my own unconscious assumptions about gender, skin color, etc.? How do unconscious bias influence our assessment and work and how can we deal with our biases?
  • Why is Diversity important for science? What does Diversity mean for you, for the university and for (natural) sciences?
  • How can you balance your work and life to be successful? Check your values and use them as a navigator for your goals!

RKI Colloquium Series on Climate Change and Public Health still running

Climate change poses a substantial challenge to global population health. It is linked to an increased risk of injury, morbidity and mortality from extreme weather events, heat-related diseases, respiratory illnesses, water-borne diseases and other water-related health impacts, zoonoses, vector-borne diseases, malnutrition and food-borne diseases, non-communicable diseases, and mental and psychosocial health.

Each year, leading experts are invited to present and discuss their area of work at the Robert Koch Colloquium. This year’s topic focuses on the effects of climate change on population health and discusses potential mitigation and adaptation solutions.

The lecture series will be in English and take place as hybrid events at 16:00 CET on Wednesdays. The next talk is on 25.05. For more information, please have a look at the attached flyer or follow the link.
