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.

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.

External courses
You may also take courses at other institutions and our partners, these can be accounted for in the yDiv curriculum after consultation.

Notes on the procedure for face-to-face workshops

Our workshops are held in compliance with the current hygiene concept of Leipzig University and the Saxon Corona Protection Ordinance. According to that, the 3G rule will be adhered to in order to protect you, our trainers and staff from infection with the corona virus. We kindly ask you to only register for our on-site workshops if you can provide verification on the day of the event. Registered persons who arrive at the Villa Tillmanns without verification will be denied access. Thank you for understanding.
