The PhD representatives represent the interests, wishes and needs of the doctoral researchers at the institute. We serve as contact persons for all PhD related issues and organize monthly get-togethers to socialize.
Emma Bailey, Johannes Roth, Salma Elnagar, Alexander Enge and Meghedi Vartanian (pictured left to right) currently represent the doctoral researchers of the institute. Salma is our external representative and works in close collaboration with the Max Planck PhDnet, the doctoral network of the Max Planck Society.
Our major goals are to offer opportunities to optimize the working environment for PhD candidates and to improve information flow within and between institutes.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your life at the institute, please feel free to drop us an e-mail (see contact details on the right). We are more than happy to hear from you!
We organize an informal social gathering for PhD students on the first Thursday evening of every month. We send around information regarding these and other events via our local PhDnet mailinglist. Please get in touch with us to be added to this list.
We look forward to meeting you!
