Supporting Junior Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
The Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS) serves as a platform for communication and interaction for all KIT junior researchers. It is aimed at both doctoral students and postdoctoral researcher*.
The KHYS is a central service unit that provides doctoral students with advice and assistance and supports them from the beginning of their thesis right through to their successful PhD graduation. Doctoral students can also turn to the KHYS for help with their further career planning. It is a university-wide umbrella institution that covers all structures involved in the promotion and support of junior researchers. The services offered by the KHYS emphasize the high priority placed on junior researchers at the KIT.
KHYS Steering Committee
KHYS is guided by a steering committee, in which professors, academic staff, junior research group leaders, and doctoral researchers are represented. The KHYS Steering Committee is chaired by the KIT Vice President for Research.
*KHYS promotes postdoctoral researchers in the first postdoc phase (qualification/ orientation phase, which should last no longer than three years).
