Working Groups

Within the Leibniz PhD Network the Steering Group coordinates the administrative work and sets the agenda but much of the work is being done by the doctoral researchers (DRs) in the working groups. Website, the survey among all doctoral researchers, a PhD agreement (in revision) and great events only to mention some accomplishments.

We want to stress that all DRs are welcome to join any of the WGs. Are you particularly interested in a specific topic among doctoral researchers, do you want to collect experiences in organization, online moderation? Or just want to engage in our group of motivated people we are more than happy to welcome you as a new member among us.

The WGs are a great opportunity for academic networking, interdisciplinary exchange and the chance to actively contribute to improvements of young academics’ working conditions within the Leibniz Association. The Leibniz PhD Network always continues working on various current issues concerning the doctoral researchers’ working conditions as well as organizing interesting events and moderating our online platforms. The network lives through its members and to really harness its potential, we need your help!

Interested? Check out our working groups for more information and contact the groups directly or via your section officer!
