Blogposts. Still a great format for Science Communication. And it’s actually how we started.
In our workshops “Science Communication I: Blog“, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers from DESY and Uni Hamburg create their own blogposts with the help of physicist and science communicator Michael Büker as well as molecular biologist and genetics blogger Theresa Schredelseker. You can find the products of these workshops below.
If you are an early stage career scientist at DESY or Uni Hamburg and missed the last workshop but still want to publish a blogpost to communicate your science, you can either keep an eye out on the workshop program of the PIER Education Platform, on which we recurrently offer the workshop, or simply reach out to us. We might schedule an individual coaching sessions for you in which we cover the basics about blogging on this website and then set you up with an authors profile in order for you to get started on your own. This Blog is open for contributions from all researchers from Uni Hamburg, DESY or other partner institutions on the Bahrenfeld research campus.

- Knowledge Makers – What to do when Scientists don’t yet “know”?
Scientists are sometimes simply presented to the world as people who “know things”. Whether they be Boffins, Profs, Sci-Guys or Poindexters, scientists are often asked to tell the world what they know. Most of the … Read more
- Dream of a Purple Sky
Sometimes a weird dream inspires me to ask a seemingly mundane question, today about why our sky is not purple. The quest to explain it is surprisingly more insightful that what I expected at first.
- Once Upon a Dynamo in the Early Universe
New simulations by University of Hamburg researchers & collaborators at Australian National University reveal a powerful turbulent dynamo acting in the early Universe. This dynamo could have rapidly amplified the initially weak cosmic magnetic fields … Read more
