IAMO PhD Council represents the interests of doctoral researchers at IAMO. The goals are to strengthen the rights and opportunities of doctoral researchers at the Institute and foster exchange among PhD candidates.
The PhD Council organises regular meetings of doctoral researchers, where they discuss issues related to PhD life at IAMO and in Halle (Saale). Key topics include the enrolment at the university, the choice of PhD courses, examination procedures and career opportunities as well as specific challenges that doctoral researchers face when they arrive in Halle (Saale), inter alia acquiring residence permit, registration with the city office, getting health insurance or searching for accommodation.
IAMO PhD Council is also active in the Leibniz PhD Network which represents the interests of doctoral researchers at the level of the Leibniz Association and promotes exchange among PhD candidates of different Leibniz Institutes. If you are interested to participate in the work of the network, please let us know.
The IAMO PhD Council team is here to support upcoming and enrolled PhD candidates of IAMO. Please know that if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the PhD Council via e-mail at PhDcouncil(at)iamo.de or call/visit us personally.
Once in a year, all doctoral researchers at IAMO elect the members of the PhD Council which consists of a spokesperson and a deputy spokesperson for each research department.
