The University of Mannheim has put together a list of important guides, documents and contact persons to ensure that, as a supervisor, you are in the best position to support your doctoral candidates.
Ombudspersons for early-stage researchers are available to both parties if differences between supervisors and their doctoral students arise during the course of the doctorate. They will give you confidential advice and provide suggestions on how to resolve conflicts.
You are also welcome to make an appointment with Ms. Bradt, the advisor on doctoral studies at the University of Mannheim, before contacting an ombudsperson.
Ombudspersons at the University of Mannheim mediate between doctoral candidates and their supervisors if disagreements arise. Find out more about good research practice at the University of Mannheim.
