When: Wednesday, 19 June 2019, 5 p.m. (17 Uhr)

Where: H2, Egerlandstraße 3, 91058 Erlangen

Register for this event by writing an email to Patrik Stoer (patrik.stoer@fau.de). You are also welcome to join without having registered in advance, but registering helps the organizers to provide brown bags with tasty snacks as well as non-alcoholic drinks and beer for every participant.

News 11/18

Last week we sat together and discussed some topics that are currently being debated at our university. Among these were:

  • Changes in the FAU’s General Doctoral Regulations (Rahmenpromotionsordnung)
  • Possible (dis-)advantages of W1 Junior Professor positions
  • The amendment of the Universities bylaws (Novellierung der Grundordnung)

We also talked about upcoming and planned social events. There will be a Get Together (Kneipenabend) on the night of the Kick-Off Event for the Academic Year 2018/19 (Auftaktveranstaltung für Promovierende) directly after the event. We will soon inform you about the time and place.

We will also consider other events in the near future like a group hike, brewery visit or guided city tour. If you have any thoughts and suggestions on this (or any other topic) we are happy to hear from you!
