Supervision committee and progress monitoring
The supervision committee accompanies the doctorate and monitors its progress. It cosists of:
|Second daily advisor||
|Backup main advisor||
The supervision committee meets at least three times during the doctorate, after six, 18 and 30 months. A compilation of HZB employees that have the right to confer a PhD and thus can function as a main advisor can be found in the HZB POFSTA database in the section „Lehrbefugnisse und Promotionsrecht“ and can be discussed with the doctoral researchers coordination upon request.
Further details regarding the composition of the supervision committee, the process of progress monitoring and so on, can be found in the HZB doctoral guidelines.
Without all three submitted progress reports, an extension of an HZB employment contract is categorically not possible.
