Agreement for Supervision of a doctoral thesis

In order to create and print a "Supervision Agreement", you must first enter your details into the PhD database.
In the database, select your main supervisor as well as the approved scientific disciplines, specified by institutes and the associated teaching units from the list in the database.
Please complete the second supervisor and mentor with address and e-mail.
Discuss all necessary entries with your primary supervisor. Sign the agreement with your supervisor and, if applicable, your mentor (also possible digitally). Have the original supervision agreement signed by the responsible person of the chosen teaching unit in the Doctoral Committee. Please also submit the documents proving the equivalence of your degree (printout from anabin or letter from the student office). If necessary, further questions may arise during the co-signing process that still need to be clarified.

After signing the agreement, please submit it together with the other documents (e.g. copies of university degrees, CV) to the Office of the Doctorial Commitee:

Universität Potsdam
Dekanat der Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftlichen Fakultät 
Haus 28, Raum 1.101
Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 24-25 
D-14476 Potsdam-Golm
