Mentoring Ph.D. Program
One of the most important measures introduced in KSOP has been the mentoring by postdoctoral or younger staff scientists. Once every semester each doctoral researcher meets with his mentor in a formalized confidential meeting which is documented with minutes. The purpose of these meetings is to define useful training measures and project milestones for the upcoming semester. In addition, any personal problems within the Ph.D. project are discussed. The KSOP learned that the relation of trust established in these meetings helps to find a practical solution already at an early stage of a problematic development.
Each doctoral researcher will have interdisciplinary thesis advice and cross-links provided by the Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC consists of a Ph.D. Supervisor, a KSOP Advisor, a Mentor, and the doctoral researcher. The regular TAC meetings will ensure a rapid progress and a successful thesis completion during three years.
