On this wiki the you find information about work and daily life at GSI related to PhD students, Diploma students, Post-Docs and other scientists. For current and new colleagues at or in the surroundings of the GSI it serves as an information platform.
Interesting news concerning PhD candidates at GSI are published in this section in irregular intervals.
Next PhD-Students meeting is 14th May 2013 (Tuesday). Come along to share and discuss issues related to PhD students at GSI. As usual we have coffee and pretzels. This months topics will include: The results of our quest for language courses, Information on courses on scientific writing, A follow-up on the office situation and a follow up discussion.
Recently Helmholtz-Juniors @ GSI has conducted a survey based on "Relocation Issue" of the PhD Students working in GSI. The Survey was intended to look into the problem and get an idea of HOW BIG is the problem. The Survey was a success. The detailed analysis of the survey concluded that the relocation was only a local issue limited to a particular group/department and not a global issue. The detailed report dated 23 April 2013 can be found here.
GSI PhD Students met on 14.02.2013 in the GSI Canteen to discuss the Helmholtz Juniors Meeting in Berlin. Find the summary at the GSI Kurier
Interesting things for newcomers at GSI can also be found in the internal area of the GSI homepage. These are partially interesting for PhD candidates and students, too. Have a look! (visible only inside the GSI network)

Helmholtz Juniors at GSI
There is no real established organization of the PhD students at GSI. Due to the fact that virtually all PhD Students at GSI are part of HGS-HIRe the official channel for complaints, problems with GSI or the grad school is Florian Senzel, elected PhD representative at HGS HIRe. On top of that there exists a email@example.com of PhD students interested that things go well at GSI. We try to pick up on issues before they become too pressing and do something about it. Additionally we organize regular PhD student meeting. You may always drop us a message if you have questions related to GSI PhD issues. Florian Senzel, !PhD representative of HGS-HIRe is also among the recipients. The current (April 2013) members of this mailinglist are:
Be informed, that Helmholtz-Juniors are NOT elected by the PhD students, we just work voluntarily together to make sure things go well for PhD? students at GSI. Feel free to join us!
If you want to reach ALL of the GSI PhD students, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Graduate Schools at GSI
The aim of this section is to give a general overview about Graduate Schools, doctorate programs ("Graduiertenkollegs") and working contracts between PhD students and GSI.
Remember that the information you will find here might not be the very latest and will not cover all technical details but we try to keep it up to date.
Most of the PhD Students working at GSI are enrolled in the Helmholtz Graduate School for Hadron and Ion reseach (HGS-HIRe). For a general overview you can have a look at the schools webpage HGS-HIRe.
The topics here are accessible for all people. However, to become an editor you have to have an account at the GSI wiki and you have to be a member of the user group "PhdStudentsGroup". Contact somebody who is already a member of that group to make you a member of it, too.
Maybe you ask yourself: Why should I be an editor? Well, the answer is another question: Why not? If you have some news or comments to the topics published here, put them here, too! This is the main objective of the wiki culture. Formating tips can be found on this external page.
If you have a specific question concerning the work of PhD students at GSI or any topic which is not covered here, please contact the PhD representatives at GSI via email@example.com or contact them directly. Questions as well as contributors are always welcome!
