„As scientists we focus on the results, as trainers we focus on the process.“
Dr. Schiller is a full-time trainer for transferable skills with Schiller & Mertens. He is a “Certified Facilitator” with the Thiagi Group and member in the “Berufsverband für Training, Beratung und Coaching” (BDVT). His experience as researcher and group leader enables him to focus on the real needs of scientists. Moreover, he uses examples from everyday life in the laboratory. From his courses given so far, graduate students, postdocs, junior group leaders, lecturers, professors, and directors feedback that they can directly apply in everyday life what they learned in his workshops. Dr. Schiller gathered a 16-years teaching experience at LMU Munich (D), EPF Lausanne (CH), UC Santa Cruz (USA), and FSU Jena (D, Lehr-Zertifikat Advanced, Habilitation in 2015, Venia legendi in Inorganic Chemistry).
The DFG Heisenberg fellow Dr. Schiller was a junior professor from 2009 to 2017. He has authored more than 40 publications. He was granted more than € 1.75 Mio funding and is involved in several EU and DFG projects, e.g. ITN “LogicLab” and research unit FOR 1738 “Heme and heme degradation products” (hhdp.uni-jena.de).
