The PhD and Postdoc Seminar is an integral element of the PhD and Postdoctoral Programs.
All proposals and progress reports are held in this seminar.

The PhD seminar takes place on Tuesdays, from 5:15 pm. The talks will be held online via Zoom. Meeting ID and password will be sent with e-mail invitation.
You can also send an e-mail to Fiona Siegfried (siegfried@bcf.uni-freiburg.de) for meeting ID and password.
