You acquire core research competencies by doing research in your doctorate: You discuss state-of-the-art research and develop your methodological skills at your chairs, faculties, and within your research communities.
However, being successful as scientist also depends on personal, analytical and interpersonal skills. Those make you highly competent in designing your research, publishing your results, presenting your work at conferences, communicating successfully within your research environment, and collaborating with others.
