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!
It’s time for another Brown Bag Break at FAU! A great opportunity for networking beyond your current research project, to get in touch with young researchers from other disciplines and to share ideas.
This time it is once more up to the Faculty of Sciences to host the event. The key part will be a presentation by DAAD Visiting Professor Francisco Zaragoza (Chair for Economy, Discrete Optimization, Mathematics) about his career in Science: „There is no Shorter Path – An Academic Career in Optimization”.
In addition, Referat F2 will quickly introduce us to FAU’S new Digital Tech Academy. All presentations will be given in English.
When: Tuesday, 13 November 2018, 5 p.m. (17 Uhr)
Where: H2, Egerlandstraße 3, 91058 Erlangen

… and for the good discussions! It was a great evening!
We would like to invite you to a Get Together of all graduate students on Tuesday, 2nd of October, starting from 19:30 in the bar Palais Schaumburg (Kernstraße 46, 90429 Nürnberg, near S-Bahn station Rothenburgerstraße).
It’s the perfect opportunity to meet your fellow doctoral candidates from other disciplines and spend a wonderful evening. No registration needed.
If you have any questions concerning the Get Together or about your doctoral process in general, we look forward to helping you:
We hope to see you there!
Thank you for coming! It was a very fun and interesting evening!
Once again we invite all doctoral candidates to spend an evening with interesting discussions and some drinks. We reserved tables in the well-known pub Star Club (Stubenlohstr. 25, 91052 Erlangen) for tonight (Wednesday, 18 April) at 20:00 h and look forward to meet you there!
This invitation goes out especially to those of you who would like to run for the ProKo in the upcoming elections. 😉
