dynaMENT is a joint program of DESY and MIN faculty Universität Hamburg. Supported by the two clusters of excellence "CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter" and "Quantum Universe" as well as European XFEL, Heinrich Pette Institute, Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter and UKE Hamburg-Eppendorf.

A successful career in a research field is more than just delivering optimal results at work. Visibility and networking is paramount when pursuing a career in science. Mentoring can be of significant importance when trying to answer questions about scientific career planning. dynaMENT Mentee 2017/18: “What I have learned about myself and the process is a kind of knowledge I can fall back on for many years”

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at our "Kick-Off-Ceremony".

Best Regards

Anika Ostermaier-Grabow
