Doktorandenkonvent of the Department of Physics

The Doktorandenkonvent represents the interests of the Ph.D. students at the KIT faculty of Physics. On our website you will find information and additional links to many Ph.D. related topics. Once a semester we meet officially to vote on aspects which were prepared and compiled in working groups, e.g.:

  • Process of doing a doctorate (Promotionsvereinbarung, Promotionsordnung, oral exam procedure, ...)
  • Working conditions (contract of employment, studentship, teaching, ...)
  • Networking of the Ph.D. students
  • more at Projects & Topics

The working groups were led by a member of the management, but the WG's don't consist of a fixed register of members. Everyone of our Doktorandenkonvent who is keen on it, is cordially invited to the meetings.

Questions and suggestions are most welcome.
