Dear Doctoral students and Fellows,

First, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our Medical University. It is always a great feeling to be surrounded by likeminded people sharing the same passion for research.

On behalf of Medical University of Vienna, let me say that we are very pleased that you have accepted our offer to become part of our research community. We feel privileged that you have chosen to become an early stage researcher at our institute. This is your first step towards an independent professional research career. Our university and the Doctoral School Team will do their best to offer you maximum support in this endeavor and accompany you all the way to your graduation.

To help you find your way at the start of your doctorate, we placed all the relevant information on this web page. The first steps you need to take are: (i) together with your supervisor, define a thesis project; (ii) in collaboration with this supervisor, submit a thesis concept in order to get registered at the university; and (iii) handle all administrative matters so as to gain full access to our facilities. That’s it! You are now ready to start your research project and set off on your journey to personal growth.  

Your supervisor is your primary contact at the university and it’s their responsibility to guide you through your studies and training as well as to create an environment where you can foster your talents and research. Thus, feel free to seek advice from your supervisor on any matter regarding your career and/or your stay here with us. Nevertheless, you are the co-creator of your career and it is expected that you will use all the opportunities handed to you wisely to develop your abilities further so as to become an excellent researcher and leader in the future.

In this spirit, I wish you a successful start and a wonderful and enlightening time at the Medical University of Vienna.
