Help in difficult situations
Problems concerning your doctorate
If you need help to resolve a conflict, there are different approaches depending on the situation:
1. Help from the GZW
If the conflict is based on pure facts, e.g. in the doctoral process, we are happy to help clarify this and clear up misunderstandings.
If the conflict is more personal and you need to find a way to talk to each other in a goal-oriented and sensible way, coaching can help you. Together with a coach, you can analyze the problem and find different approaches to conduct the conversation independently.
Individual coaching offer from TUM
3. Doctoral representatives of the GZW
All doctoral candidate at the GZW elect the doctoral representatives. They are members of the Graduate Council at TUM and represented the members of GZW. Additionally they have the right to hospitality in the School Council of the TUM School of Life Sciences.
4. Advisory Board of the GZW
The Advisory Board of the GZW consists of two professors, one scientific employee and the doctoral representatives of the GZW. After consultation with you, we can pass your case to one of these persons. Depending on the problem next steps can be discussed.
5. School Office
After consultation with you, we can describe your case to the management of the school office and consider further steps.
6. TUM Research Integrity Office
