The Fachschaft Doktorat is the representation of interests of doctoral candidates at the Vienna University of Technology. A small group of volunteers, including five officially elected representatives, take care of your requests.
Our areas of responsibility are manifold, since the border between students and university employees is often blurred heavily for doctoral candidates. Among many things, we are co-designing the curriculum within the study commission and we are closely working togehter with rectorate and the employee organization for scientific personal of the Vienna University of Technology.
The process of decision finding is open for all PhD candidates at our jour fixe meetings and each pre-doc can has one vote. This means you can join us at our meetings and introduce issues and positions in one of our jour fixe meetings.
As a member of doktorat.at, an open platform for doctoral candidates (PhD equivalent) and junior researchers for the whole of Austria, we represent the interests of our doctoral candidates not only at the Vienna University of Technology, but also on a federal level. Furthermore, Fachschaft Doktorat works closely together with representatives at the university level (HTU) and the national level (ÖH).
