Our goal is to introduce female students and doctoral students with a background in physics and chemistry to the topics of spectroscopy and light-matter interactions by lectures, group activities and discussions in Blossin.

During the four-day workshop under the direction of Prof. Caterina Cocchi (Dept. of Physics/ IRIS/ CRC 951) and Dr. Zsuzsanna Heiner (Dept. of Chemistry/ SALSA), participants will be provided with the basic scientific principles that enable them to answer fundamental questions like “What are the colors of things?” and “Why do we see what we see?”. Lectures are held in English, but the conference language is also German. This workshop is conducted as part of the WiNS Adlershof program (Women in Natural Sciences). For more information, see the program.

Application by e-mail to Dr. Petra Metz (in English or German), including:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Performance review (AGNES)
  • Short letter of motivation (half a DIN A4 page)
