The 2019 General Assembly (GA) is getting closer and there are some spots left, so we extended the deadline for registration until the 14th of August. The GA is the main assembly of doctoral researchers representatives from all Leibniz institutes.
Of note, if a representative can not join it is desired and requested that a replacement is send. This person does not have to be an elected representative and is eligible to vote on or candidate as a member of the Steering Group.
On Tuesday 25th June about 50 Ombudspersons came together for their annual Network meeting at the Leibniz Headquarter in Berlin. The meeting was dedicated to the topic of power abuse in science. The Leibniz PhD Network was invited to present their position and join the following panel discussion.
This publication marks an important milestone for the work of the Leibniz PhD Network:
For the first time, we provide and analyze detailed data on the situation of doctoral researchers across all sections of the Leibniz Association. Among else we describe the doctoral researchers’ current working situations, opportunities for career development and experiences with supervision as well as work-life balance. The Leibniz PhD Network designed, conducted, and evaluated the survey in which over 1,000 doctoral researchers participated.
