Advisory Panel system

IMPRS-ESM uses an ‘Advisory Panel system’ to structure supervision of doctoral studies. Advisory Panels comprise three experienced scientists and are elected early in a doctoral term. From the beginning each PhD candidate has a primary advisor formally recognised by IMPRS-ESM. Candidate and primary advisor jointly take responsibility for the definition and design of the doctoral research. A co-advisor complements the scientific expertise of the primary advisor and a senior academic with experience in doctoral training serves as the Panel Chair. Panel Chairs are knowledgeable in the research topic but have no relation to the research group and thus function as a peer reviewer for the School. Regular bi-annual meetings provide quality and progress control to ensure timely completion of advanced research studies. Download the pamphlet ‘Advisory Panel system’ for detailed information.
