Do you care about the working conditions of doctoral researchers? Do you want to turn research into policy advice? Does data speak to you?
If the above only slightly fits you, then we have the perfectly right challenges for you!
The PhD agreement group is a subgroup within the working group of diversity, equal opportunities, and working conditions of the Leibniz PhD Network. The group’s task is to develop an agreement between PhD candidates and their institutes that aims to be valid for all Leibniz institutes. Among others the topics of the agreement are supervision, career options, advanced training and working hours. Besides developing a basic agreement for all, we also take into account the different sections and research areas within Leibniz and their possible specifics. Of course, we will also consider the results of the survey group to take a closer look at the actual conditions that should be improved by an agreement. In the end we want to present a fundamental agreement that all PhD representatives and candidates can use to either develop a PhD agreement for their institute or modify and improve their existing one.
The survey group is a subgroup within the working group of diversity, equal opportunities, and working conditions of the Leibniz PhD Network. This group’s task is to develop, conduct, and evaluate internal surveys that help the network to know more about the doctoral researchers it represents. This information will then be utilized to shape the argument’s thrust of the network in order to advocate fair working conditions for its members.
