Who, what, where?

Are you looking for the right contact person for a particular topic at a faculty or school? You can find the information you need on this page. You can contact the following people:

  • Mediators can help you in conflict situations if you do not think the Graduate Centre team or the chairs of the bodies responsible for doctoral degrees are suitable for helping you with a particular difficulty you are experiencing while working on your doctoral degree.
  • The Doctoral Candidates’ Representatives Governing Body represents your interests as a doctoral candidate in all areas of the University. The latest information can be found here: doctoral candidates’ representatives blog. (in German)
  • The chairs of the bodies responsible for doctoral degrees play an important role throughout the process of working on your doctoral degree and the examination at the end. They make decisions on admitting candidates to doctoral studies together with the bodies. The bodies ensure that the doctorate procedure is conducted in an appropriate manner and not subject to delays. The chairs are entitled to take decisions that cannot be delayed in place of the bodies responsible.
  • Research representatives can provide advice on funding and applications.
  • Internationalisation representatives can provide assistance if you want to organise a research stay abroad or if you are from another country.

Contacts at the faculties

Working on your doctoral degree is a demanding task and involves collaborating closely with your supervisor. In rare cases, this relationship can become strained, particularly if some things do not go according to plan. Such issues are usually only temporary and can be solved by talking to your supervisor. However, if problems persist and a short discussion does not resolve the issues, conflict can occur which may damage motivation and affect work on the doctoral degree. If you experience such a situation you can contact the head of the Graduate Centre, Dr. Stefanie Herberger, at any time. You can also seek advice from the chairs of the bodies responsible for doctoral degrees at the faculties. If for any reason you do not which to contact the chairs of the bodies, the following mediators are available to support you:

Regardless of your subject you can also contact Dr. Carmen Pospisil who represents research staff in the Graduate Centre’s Steering Committee and is also a member of the Council for Academic Staff.
