At D-BIOL, decision-making is subdivided in three chambers: the departmental conference (DK), the professor conference (PK) and the conference of the teaching commission (UK), each of which has specific tasks assigned. Besides professors, each of these chambers consists of representatives for teaching, technical and scientific staff, as well as for students. One of AMB’s main tasks is to organize the election of all scientific staff delegates at D-BIOL. AMB ensures that those voices are given to motivated members over all institutes at D-BIOL.
As a delegate, your responsibilities include attending the conferences and representing the views of scientific staff there. After the conference, it is your duty to report important points of discussion to AMB. This is a perfect position for someone who is outspoken and would like to be more involved in decision making at the department.
Moreover, AMB sends delegates to the Professor Recruitment committees in order to assess the candidate’s qualifications, experience and intentions regarding teaching, thesis supervision and mentoring.
