While working on a scientific problem you will apply fundamental and advanced research methods. There are lots of transdisciplinary questions, e.g. with respect to research design, data collection and data analysis, presenting and defending of findings and implementing them into real-world settings outside academia. The workshops on specific research methods vary from offers on statistic procedures and software packages, methods of text analysis and interpretation as well as the training of efficient reading techniques.
Please feel free to contact the Graduate Academy with your requests and suggestions.
All current workshops of this category are available on the qualifications portal of Jena University.
