The "Altenberg Workshops in Theoretical Biology" address key questions of biological theories. Each workshop is organized by leading experts of a certain field who invite a group of international specialists to the KLI. The Altenberg Workshops aim to make conceptual progress and to generate initiatives of a distinctly interdisciplinary nature.
As a researcher you will be part of an organization in a specific role: Working on your own project, being part of a team, leading a small project, a larger research center or an institute. This workshop will provide skills for your professional career, will help you to be aware about your mental models about your career and will support you in finding clarity about your next steps.
This training will provide a theory input about the systemic view of social systems and of organizations, the triangle between strategy, structure and culture and the concept of role. You will have the opportunity to examine the role of the researcher apply it to your current role as a fellow – and elaborate the concept of the role in a social system, clarify expectations and understand role-‐taking, role-‐making and role-‐shaping.
