Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Who we are

The doctoral offices are a central part of the Graduate Center Adlershof.

The colleagues in the doctoral offices provide guidance on administrative academic matters to all doctoral candidates of the faculty and accompany the entire formal doctoral process: from admission to the doctoral studies, to the extension of the doctoral period, to the official beginning of the doctoral examination process - they are your contacts for all questions and concerns!

The Graduate Center Adlershof, along with the doctoral offices, is the central service facility for all doctoral students at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and for those interested in doing a doctorate.

The coordinators of the Graduate Center are responsible for the advisory, further education, networking and information services as well as the quality assurance of the doctoral supervision processes. They are contact persons for career planning and (conflict) counselling in all stages of the doctoral phase.

The coordinators discuss new ideas and offers of the Graduate Center at regular meetings with doctoral researchers from all five institutes - the Sounding Board.
