PhD representatives on the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics
On 17 October 2016, all PhD students on the MPI Hannover were invited for the elections for the internal PhD Student representative. In the context of this election, Lars Nieder and Daniel Penkert have been elected as official PhD student representatives. Their responsibilities cover the general interests of PhD Students.
The main task of the internal PhD representatives is to function as contact persons for all internal and external concerns of the students.
They provide a platform for an exchange among the students and organize regular PhD meetings, such as social events.
The PhD speaker at the MPI attends the yearly PhD meetings of the MPG to get informed and to inform the other PhD students about the changes that take place within the MPG.
