Welcome to the DR.FSU

The DR.FSU is the representative council of the doctoral candidates at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Whether scientific staff, scholarship holders or doctoral candidates in external structures - we are the voice and partner of all doctoral candidates and we contribute to improving the conditions for graduation.

We deal with topics of higher education policies with relevance for young academics, organize social and scientific events, and offer opportunities for networking of the doctoral candidates at the FSU.

We look forward to any questions and suggestions about our work and invite all interested parties to our monthly meetings! Besides, all doctoral candidates are welcome to join the committees of the DR.FSU.
