Doing a doctorate with disabilities

In Germany federal and state laws define what constitutes a disability or a chronic illness as well as what rights persons with disabilities or chronic illnesses have. At university such persons can be supplied with special workplace equipment or their exam requirements can be modified.

If you have any questions concerning this legal status the persons and institutions listed below offer information and consulting. If you are pursuing a doctorate here at Kiel University and facing difficulties because of your disability or chronic illness or if special circumstances arise they offer competent and confidential help. All consulting is strictly confidential – no information is passed on to third parties. If necessary translators can be called in; they are also bound  to professional discretion.

The employer’s representative for the participation of disabled persons in working life, Ms. Diana Grimm, is available as a contact person for all employees of the university concerning all questions about their employment. Persons applying for a position at Kiel University also may also consult Ms. Grimm; they can even do so before submitting their application.

The Schwerbehindertenvertretung (Disabled Employees' Representation) advises employees of Kiel University from the academic as well as the technical/administrational sector concerning all legal and organisational aspects of working with a disability. Applicants for a position at the university also have the possibility to consult with them before they submit their application.

Disabled doctoral candidates who are not employees of the university but receive funding from third parties or finance themselves can contact Ms. Diana Kaufmann at the AStA if they have any questions.

The officer for diversity offers antidiscrimination consulting for doctoral candidates at Kiel University on issues concerning equal opportunities, educational equality, inclusion and the removal of barriers in research, teaching and administration.
