Deadline to sign up: two weeks before the scheduled date
a) Doctoral skills development: courses offered as part of the QP
Due to the pandemic, we have had to cancel many of the courses in this category (e.g. the writing and presentation skills workshops) and many courses offered by the Chairs were cancelled or postponed.
The courses that are currently available are the online courses that are offered by the Graduate Schools or as part of the pool of general transferable skills (ASQ).
b) Generic skills development: courses offered as part of the QP
1. ‘Project management 1k’ (Dr. Rauh)
Doctoral researchers at the Faculty of Human Sciences can receive funds from the QP to allow them to host visits from external researchers. The workshop/talk etc. delivered by the visiting researcher should be open to all members of the Faculty. The QP will provide up to €1,000 in funding as well as non-financial support in the form of assistance with: liaising with invitees, booking venues, designing posters, advertising the event, claiming travel and accommodation expenses, getting news coverage (e.g. einBlick), etc. The doctoral researchers will be expected to implement their projects independently.
To apply for ‘Project management 1k’ funding, submit an informal request to the QP (approx. two pages describing your project and including a rough timeline and budget). Please obtain approval for your project from your doctoral supervisory team (Promotionskommitee) before you submit your request.
You can start up to two projects per semester.
c) Services provided as part of the QP
1. One-on-one writing tutoring (Dr. Hoos/Dr. Rauh)
We offer by-appointment tutoring sessions. A session will last 45 minutes; additional sessions can be scheduled if needed. Please submit up to five pages of your writing to your tutor before your session and let him or her know on what aspects you want him or her to focus. Our approach is non-directive. We can help you with your writing process but do not offer proofreading or help with content-related matters.
d) Opportunities offered in collaboration with our partners at JMU (GSH, ASQ, Writing Centre)
1. See web pages of the Graduate School of the Humanities (GSH)
2. See pool of general transferable skills (ASQ); please consult with your thesis committee as many of the courses are primarily aimed at students who are studying for a Bachelor’s degree!
