Dr. Julian Thiele announced as TUD Young Investigator
Support of independent junior research group leaders goes to LRC principal investigator Dr. Julian Thiele.
Dr. Julian Thiele announced as TUD Young Investigator by Prof. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Rector of TU Dresden.
The "TUD Young Investigator" status strengstens independant junior research group leaders by fostering their integration into the faculties and offering a qualification programme tailored to their particular needs.
The status is awarded for a limited time and includes and entails the following rights:
Every "TUD Young Investigator"
- will be given a TUD university teacher as a mentor and direct contact,
- will be accepted by the faculty as an assessor and examiner in doctoral procedures, particularly with regard to the dissertations they (co-)supervise,
- will participate in teaching,
- will be integrated in their respective faculty, including the possibility to attend public parts of Faculty Council meetings as a guest,
- will get the opportunity to take part in a range of training individually designed to address the needs of academics in this qualification phase.
The aim of this scheme is to counteract the structural disadvantages sometimes experienced by this group of researchers due to their lack of defined status and poor or nonexistent connection to a faculty.
Critical points here are primarily the lack of entitlement to assess (co-)supervised dissertations, the restricted possibility to gain experience in academic teaching and the often flawed information from the faculties.
