Doctoral Convention

The doctoral convention is the union of all accepted PhD students at the KIT faculty for Informatics and actively advocates for the interests of the all doctoral researcher at the faculty. In particular, this includes better, comparable and transparent promotion conditions at KIT, regardless of the contractual situation and the place of work. The Convention sees itself as an information point and mediator for doctoral researcher of all promotion phases. The convention members are informed about relevant events and developments. Out of its midst, the doctoral convention nominates upto six persons to constitute the executive board. The board represents the decisions and interests of the faculty's doctoral students to KIT or externally entities. If you have organisational questions or problems for your PhD studies, feel free to contact the board.

Doctoral agreement/Supervision contract

Since 1st January 2015, the conclusion of a doctoral agreement and the central registration at the KHYS are required for acceptance as a doctoral student at a KIT faculty. The doctoral agreement is between the supervisor and doctoral student with the goal to bring transparency in terms of content, time, and requirements of the PhD studies.

The KIT provides a template for the doctoral aggreement: KIT Template. Additionally, there is a (originally written by Prof. Snelting).

The content of the doctoral aggreement should be negotiated. Following (incomplete) list gives ideas for talking points:

  • Expected topic and published paper count
  • Teaching assisting
  • Administrative work (in project)
  • Visits of Summer Schools
  • Dates for assessment letters for scholarships (e.g. DAAD)

Please contact DE HAA, for question on the legal issues. For any other question, feel free to contact the board. More information are available at KHYS or DE HAA. The doctoral agreement bases on the LHG §38 Abs. 5.
