info  Computational methods and strategies in structure-based drug designJoanna Panecka-Hofman, Daria Kokh, Neil Bruce December 4-5, 2017 ECTS-Points: 1
Abstract, registration & information:
Computational structure-based methods are currently routinely used in drug design process, when potential drug targets are known or can be identified. Simulations allow for better understanding of interactions between small molecules and their targets, and thus allow for efficient design and optimization of drugs, e.g., protein inhibitors.

In this course we will present principles of simulation methods applicable in drug design and practical aspects of structure-based drug design strategies. We will focus on such techniques as ligand docking, molecular dynamics and binding free energy estimation methods.

Please find more details about the course in the abstract attached.

Key Competence Courses
info  Project Management Tailored for Doctoral ThesisDr. Justus Meier Nov 7 & 8, 2017, Dec 11, 2017 ECTS-Points: 2
Abstract, registration & information:
Working as a PhD student you have the challenging task of developing research findings and write you doctoral thesis within three years. This alone is a demanding job. In addition, it is vital to the scientific process that your findings are presented to the scientific community. For most PhD students this is the first big project in their professional life and it could have a crucial impact on their future professional career. PhD students are highly motivated when they start their PhD studies but may underestimate the need for professional management for this three-year project "doctoral thesis".
This seminar demonstrates how to approach the doctoral thesis in a professional way. Project management tools and techniques are used, tailored to the specific situation of PhD students. You will learn how to set a project vision, define clear objectives, gain buy-in from your supervisor and other colleagues in your group, and how to develop a project plan, which is structured and at the same time flexible enough to easily adjust to unexpected findings. You will establish a "controlling cycle" which helps you to recognise risks and problems as early as possible, and you will learn how to manage critical situations and deal with ups and downs. Furthermore, networking with colleagues, supervisors and other people are important topics of this seminar.
Throughout the seminar, you will work on your own doctoral thesis and share your experience with others. This seminar is most beneficial for PhD students who are in the early phases of their doctoral thesis. At the end of the seminar you will have established a strategy on how to approach your own doctoral thesis. During the follow-up REVIEW we will share experience and best practices and deal with open questions from the first module.
This seminar will help you to make the most effective use of your three years and finish your doctoral thesis on time.
You will also learn and practise the basic concepts of project management – a prerequisite in industries and research institutions.

info  Short Course: 20 Years Bromine Explosion - Atmospheric Chemistry in the Polar TroposphereProf. Ulrich Platt, Prof. Eva Gutheil November 23-24, 2017 ECTS-Points: 1
Abstract, registration & information:
The short course concerns different aspects of the bromine explosion in the polar troposphere, which is associated with the ozone depletion in the polar spring. Both numerical simulations of the auto-catalytic chemical reaction mechanism as well as observations in field campaigns are addressed. The short course provides fundamental information on the physical and chemical processes involved. Moreover, the current status of research in this area as well as future research is emphasized.

info  Academic English Language WorkshopJonathan Griffiths Nov 27, 2017, 10:00-12:00, 13:30-15:30 ECTS-Points: 1
Abstract, registration & information:
Who I am:
My name is Jonathan Griffiths (Jonnie). I have extensive experience in both freelance academic English-language proofreading and in tutoring of various kinds (workshops, classes, one-on-one tuition). I am simultaneously writing a PhD in Ancient Philosophy at UCL, UK.

Suggested Content and Breakdown of Workshop:
I am altogether flexible and happy to tailor an academic English-language workshop to the specific needs and requests of those in attendance. However, from my experience of the workshop environment in the past, I have often found it helpful to isolate certain core features of successful & stylish English writing technique. The below headings are only a handful of examples:

- Argumentation: use of connectives of different kinds (e.g. to contrast or rebut an argument previously made, to advance a complementary argument, to cross-reference and connect parts of your argument and written work together)
- Introductions & Conclusions
- Scholarly etiquette: acknowledging previous opinion, arguing against it in a professional manner; or creating an academic space for your own original contribution (e.g. to a scholarly field)
- Footing: shorthand and cross-reference (including correct use of Latin and/or abbreviated terms: see, cf. pp., ff., etc.)
- Writing Abstracts (or other materials that preface your main paper): tips & tricks to synthesise your argument into a digestible package (e.g. of 250 words or shorter).
