Thesis Advisory Committee

All students are mentored by a supervisor at the CPC who will be working with the students on their scientific project and career development plan. Additionally, an individual Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) for each student will be established within the first 3 months of the project.

  • CPC Supervisor
  • Advisor(s) at university*
  • External expert

*For MMRS students (Ph.D. Medical Research), at least two of the TAC members must be from the LMU Medical Faculty. The supervisor of Dr. rer. nat. candidates must have a qualifying degree in the life sciences and must be member of the respective faculty where the degree is obtained.

All TAC members and the doctoral candidate must sign the SUPERVISION AGREEMENT.

Together with the TAC, students must complete and submit the TARGET AGREEMENT (incl. project title, outline, objectives, milestones etc.) by the end of the 2nd semester at the latest (signed by all TAC members!). This should be re-evaluated during TAC meetings and amended if necessary.
