Doctoral advisory boards

To advise the Studienpräses, the relevant directorates of studies, the doctoral candidates and the supervisors, doctoral advisory boards are established.

The doctoral advisory boards are of particular importance for the public presentations at the Faculty. Moreover, the doctoral advisory boards support the speaker of the ViDSS/the director of studies and the steering committee in deciding on applications for admission to the doctoral programme and to the ViDSS. A doctoral advisory board is responsible for one or several field/s of doctoral research or a larger sub-field of a field of doctoral research in a curriculum. Doctoral boards are chaired by a member of the Steering Committee. The official appointment procedure for members to advisory boards is specified in the Statutes of the University of Vienna.
