PhD Representatives at the Albert Einstein Institute
For all questions related to applications, please refer to the corresponding doctoral programmes (IMPRS) and coordinators.
External PhD Representative
The external PhD representative is elected annually by all doctoral researchers from the AEI that are members of one of the two IMPRS (IMPRS on Gravitational-Wave Astronomy and IMPRS for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory). Its role is to represent them at the annual General Meeting of the PhDNet and vote for the new Steering Group.
He/she/they hence serves as a connection between the PhD students from the AEI and the PhDNet, but also with the administration of the AEI, and is really a relay point for all doctoral researchers, especially newcomers.
Together with internal representatives, the aim of the external representative is to optimize the life of all PhD students at the AEI, by organising various social events at the two sites of the institute or online, but also seminars, etc.
All current PhD students should not hesitate to reach us with any questions, or if they want to take part and become a representative themselves.
Internal PhD Representatives at AEI Hannover
The internal PhD representatives act on behalf of all PhD students at AEI Hannover to communicate their concerns to the institute's directors and network with other PhD students in the Max Planck Society.
