  • Department doctoral representatives

    Departmental Student Representatives can have a wide variety of responsibilities, depending on the department’s needs and culture.

Specifically, you will be asked to participate in the admission seminars, establishment of new doctoral positions and have close contact with the study director. In some departments, you might be invited to the discussions regarding the green light applications for PIs. Some Departmental Representatives also choose to organize socials events to improve the communication between all students of the department. You can also opt for additional roles like department council and support the Prefekt if you choose to.
