Your KHYS membership is your ticket to our wide range of services. As a member you have access to all the advantages and services KHYS has to offer and you will be informed about all the possibilities provided by KIT.
Membership for doctoral researchers doing their doctorate at one of the eleven KIT departments
If you are doing a doctorate at one of the eleven KIT departments, your registration via the central web portal Docata automatically makes you a member of KHYS.
This membership is valid under the condition that you hand in your (timely) application for acceptance at your KIT department and you have been accepted by your department.
Your membership automatically ends with the successful completion of your oral exam (disputation or doctoral vita.)
Your membership also ends when you or your supervisor cancels the doctoral agreement, when you are not pursuing your research project any longer. In that case, please let us know the date of ending your project.
Membership for doctoral researchers accepted at a different university but with KIT as their central research location
Membership for postdocs
As young scientists who have received their doctorates you can register via the KHYS network and as KHYS members profit from our offers and services, provided that you are in the qualification/orientation phase for postdocs at KIT. This postdoctoral phase generally takes three years at KIT and can be done directly after the doctorate or after an already completed postdoctoral phase at another university or extramural institution in Germany or abroad.
