PhD Workshop

Chemnitz, September 4, 2019

The conference will be preceded by a Workshop for PhD students of media psychology, jointly organized by Leonard Reinecke, Özen Odağ and Diana Rieger. The full day workshop will take place on first day of the conference (September 4, 2019) at the Main Lecture Hall Building at Chemnitz University of Technology.

All PhD students working on topics from media psychology and related areas are welcome to apply – especially students who are pursuing an academic career after their dissertations. 

As part of this workshop, students will work on their individual presentation and writing skills, receive advice on career planning, and will have the opportunity for networking. The entire workshop will be conducted in English.

To enable intensive group work and mentoring, a maximum of 8 PhD students will be accepted. Participation will be subsidised by the Media Psychology Division of the German Psychological Society.
