Further contact persons and conflict management

In case of conflicts or problems that impair the working conditions or the quality of the doctorate, HZB doctoral researchers are requested to proactively look for solutions or support. The HZB Graduate Center is available to all HZB doctoral researchers at any time and assists confidentially in finding suitable contact persons or points out further possibilities for solving conflicts.

The HZB ombuds persons located on both campuses offer consultation and mediation in case of disputes or issues in scientific conduct (e.g. authorship issues, suspicion of scientific misconduct etc.) and can be contacted by doctoral researchers at any time.

As well as the works council, the gender equality officer, the HZB Office for Work and Life (OWL), the members of the Department of Personnel and Social Matters, the anti-discrimination officer and any other HZB contact point and support service.
