In 2022 the PhD student association organized for multiple events for the doctoral students of the Doctoral School of Exact and natural Sciences. Below is a brief summary of the events:
Visits and trips:
- Synchrotron SOLARIS: It was possible to see the experimental hall with the heart of SOLARIS - a storage ring where electrons are stored and accelerated. The event was organized within three thematic groups (biology, informatics and physics), there were 20 places for PhD students in each group.
- JU Botanical garden: On 22 of July 2022, the PhD Student Council of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences organized a visit of the Botanical Garden of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. We visited this huge garden full of various plants, trees, shrubs, cactuses, and green houses and etc. The garden’s service guided us to visit whole part of the garden and even the museum inside the garden with useful and interesting information. Mahsa Shahbandeh as a member of association of the PhD Student Council of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences took responsibility for organizing this event. This event in the garden was located in Mikołaja Kopernika 27, 31-501 Kraków. Around 32 of PhD students of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences were participated in the event.
- JU Astronomical Observatory: The PhD student council of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences together in association with the Astronomy Observatory of the Jagiellonian University organized a research and integration meeting for doctoral students on November 5th 2022. This informal meeting was aimed at outlining the scientific research carried out at Astronomical Observatory to students from different scientific disciplines and facilitating student integration and helping them meet one another. Several lectures related to astronomy research was delivered and about 50 PhD students took part in this event.
- Yoga classes: On 3 December 2022, the first yoga class organised by the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences PhD Student Association took place. On Saturday morning, PhD students had the opportunity to perform several cycles of asanas (postures), including the so-called Sun Salutation. During 1.5 hours, participants were able to learn the basics of yoga, which can be used at home to wake up in the morning. Breath was extremely important, so we focused on it throughout the class. At the end, the instructor led a short meditation, which allowed us to relax our muscles and calm our minds before the rest of the day full of activity.
