PhD Representatives

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.

Dear doctoral researchers,

Welcome to the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences! Here we offer some information about the PhD representatives at our institute.

Alexander Enge, Dorukhan Açıl, Felix Deilmann, Hongyan Zhao, Jochen Schmidt and Philipp Kaniuth currently represent the doctoral researchers of the institute.
Felix is our external representative and works in close collaboration with the Max Planck PhDnet, the doctoral network of the Max Planck Society. Alexander, Dorukhan, Hongyan, Jochen and Philipp are the internal representatives.

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 find the time we would be glad to get to know you! Feel free to drop by at one of our offices or, in times of Corona, drop us an email. Also, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your work at the institute, we are more than happy to be your contact persons.

We would also like to facilitate exchange between doctoral researchers from different research groups and departments. This is why we organize a get together once a month. We usually send information regarding these meetings via our mailinglist ( Please get in touch with us to be added to the list.

We look forward to meeting you!
