  • Doctoral Candidates choose a Thesis Committee (TC) consisting of the supervisor and two “mentors”. At least one mentor should be member of the CRC 1218 faculty. The second mentor can be from a different field but provide supportive complementary expertise.
    One of the mentors needs to be a university professor and the other has to be at least at the level of an independent group leader.
    Experienced / advanced Postdocs can serve as mentors.

    (oral presentation and written proposal)

  • Within the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year Doctoral Candidates meet the TC members and present the project in an oral form and prepare a written report.
