Courses & events

yDiv seeks to qualify its doctoral researchers with an excellent training programme and also creates opportunities for integration and networking. yDiv members get to know other PhDs, postdocs, and many other iDiv colleagues at PhD retreats, summer schools, BBQs, and many more.

iDiv offers on-site childcare. Please contact us in case of need.

yDiv courses
The courses yDiv offers cover themes ranging from biodiversity topics to individual career development. You are largely free to choose the ones that benefit you most (for the yDiv curriculum requirements click here).

All course participants are required to comply with the iDiv code of conduct.

Graduate Academy Courses
You may also take courses at the graduate academies and our partners within the iDiv consortium. These can be accounted for the yDiv curriculum.
