Doctoral Candidate Representation

Doctoral Representatives on the GSGS Steering Committee

Since the introduction of the GSGS statutes (Ordnung) on 12 February, 2021, its doctoral candidate members are represented by two Doctoral Representatives on the GSGS Steering Committee; one is an academic staff member (>49% contract) and one has 'student' status (<50% contract, scholarship, etc.). They (and one deputy each) are elected during the annual General Assembly (see the page Organisation and the presentation on the structure and governance of the GSGS on the right).

GSGS Doctoral Council

All doctoral candidate members of the GSGS jointly constitute the GSGS Doctoral Assembly. On 5 March 2021, the assembly members elected the GSGS Doctoral Council for a term of office of approx. one year. The Doctoral Council is a self-governing body that sends representatives to various higher-level representative bodies, such as the Faculty's Doctoral Representative Council.

The GSGS Doctoral Council has regular meetings with the GSGS coordinator to keep each-other informed. Watch the presentation on the right for further information.

For activities organised by the Council, please check the gsgs-wiki-pages.

The current members of the doctoral council are in:

Geography

Geology & Mineralogy and Crystallography

Geophysics and Meteorology

Contact: For questions or comments the GSGS Doctoral Council can be reached via gsgs-council@uni-koeln.de.

Further offices: Linus Kalvelage (Geography) has been the Geosciences representative on the Faculty's Doctoral Representatives Council since December 2020.
