Report from the academic writing Workshop in October 2019

The Academic Writing Workshop with Marcy Scholz was great and an overall positive experience to develop a different perspective on academic writing. With the help of several methods, we learned a lot from basics to fine details. This Workshop kick-starts your desire to write.


Academic writing is not a talent, it’s a skill everyone can learn and improve.“ That’s what Marcy told us to the beginning of the workshop - and she was right. Marcy, a really positive and highly motivated person, showed us different strategies to write academic texts...

Academic writing is not a talent, it’s a skill everyone can learn and improve.“ That’s what Marcy told us to the beginning of the workshop - and she was right. Marcy, a really positive and highly motivated person, showed us different strategies to write academic texts and practiced them together with us afterwards. Within these two days every participant could figure out which strategy is the best to become more efficient in writing. All in all, it was a worthwhile workshop not only because of many useful inputs by Marcy but also because of meeting other members of the CRC and exchanging experiences of writing in academia.


This feedback from two participants perfectly describes the Academic Writing Workshop that took place on October 22-23, 2019 in Mainz. 

Everbody knows that writing good papers is hard work and with help from Marcy Scholz, our young scientists got all strategies and techniques to do so. We are looking forward for their papers and love to invite Marcy Scholz again soon.

New video on the DynaMORE project - modelling stress resilience

Link to a video on the DynaMORE project of Prof. Raffael Kalisch, who is also a PI and vice spokesperson in this CRC 1193. 

The goal of the project is to develop an in silico model of stress resilience.

3rd CRC 1193 PhD and Postdoc Retreat

19-22 August 2019, Hirschegg, Austria

The third CRC 1193 PhD and Postdoc Retreat again presented a great opportunity to get together and discuss different perspectives and ideas on resilience research. 20 PhD students, 4 postdocs, 2 PIs, 5 Master’s and Bachelor’s students, 1 lab manager, and 1 coordinator took the opportunity to participate and made the journey to charming Haus Bergkranz in the Austrian Alps.

19-22 August 2019, Hirschegg, Austria

The third CRC 1193 PhD and Postdoc Retreat again presented a great opportunity to get together and discuss different perspectives and ideas on resilience research. 20 PhD students, 4 postdocs, 2 PIs, 5 Master’s and Bachelor’s students, 1 lab manager, and 1 coordinator took the opportunity to participate and made the journey to charming Haus Bergkranz in the Austrian Alps.

Due to organizational difficulties and cancellations, this year’s scientific programme unfortunately did not include any keynote lectures, however, advanced PhD students made up for it by giving exciting short talks and presenting their latest findings. Presentations ranged from animal models of stress resilience and methodological aspects to human research, leading to fruitful discussions on how best to integrate research within our CRC and how to translate research from animals to humans (and back) in general.  Everyone who did not get the chance to give a short talk was encouraged to present a poster during two lively poster sessions.

Like the year before, a so-called Unconference bridged the scientific and social programme. First, during a market place event, all participants could come up with ideas for short sessions, pitch their ideas to everyone and effectively create the unconference schedule. Sessions took place in the afternoon and participants were invited to take part in discussions e.g., on the philosophy of resilience, mouse behaviour, and how to resolve conflicts in scientific collaborations. More hands-on workshops included tips on scientific writing, python programming, origami, a mindfulness exercise, and how to communicate research results to the public. Opportunities to get involved in local young researcher groups, such as the Neuroscience Graduates’ Colloquium in Mainz were also advertised during the Unconference.  

Everyone really enjoyed the social activities, such as the traditional scientific pub quiz, a hiking trip through the Kleinwalsertal, and adrenaline-charged competitive card games sessions in the evenings. 

The overall feedback was very positive, and participants would like to come back to Hirschegg for a fourth retreat next year.

Thanks also to the organizers Sandra Zurborg and Laura Meine.
