Doctoral Candidates’ Representatives

As Doctoral Candidates’ Representatives, it is our mission to support all employees with doctoral projects in the process of working on their thesis. We provide advice during local consultation hours (if circumstances allow), by e-mail or telephone. Together with other units and persons (Promoting Junior Researchers and Further Education, Works Council, etc.), we try to further improve the conditions for doctoral candidates and represent their concerns to the management of the institute. We also see the social integration of new doctoral candidates into the institute and networking among the doctoral candidates themselves as central tasks.
