Contract duration less than 12 months are only possible at the CRC, if a reliable / realistic future planning for the time after the end of the CRC contract is documented (an earlier contract termination is possible at any time by mutual agreement).
Should interim financing for new employees be needed to avoid a short contractual period, you may contact the board early which can - if available - use lump sum funds of the CRC.
Requirements for renewals
Updated annual report (not older than 6 months at the end of the contract).
Lecture in the iRTG or CRC seminar (not older than 12 months at the end of the contract).
Additionally for extensions for doctoral researchers: Brief statements of both supervisors concerning the status of the doctoral project including a prognosis and the expected date of thesis defense.
Additionally for extensions for postdoctoral researchers: PostDoc writes a career and research plan; PI/JRGL writes a short comment on the plan.
These requirements must be fulfilled at least three months before the expiry of the contract, because this is the time frame required by the KIT administration.
The application with the current contract end and the desired extension period will be sent by the PI/JRGL by e-mail to the spokespersons, Marlis Hochbruck and Wolfgang Reichel.
The above requirements are checked by the iRTG spokesperson (for doctoral researchers) or by the Executive Board.
The decision is made by the board and then communicated to the PIs/JRGLs and the employee.
The completed and signed form Qualifizierungsbefristung (deutsch / englisch) should be send to Sonja Becker by the PIs/JRGLs
If a salary (complementing the CRC funding) is paid from other sources, Sonja Becker also needs the corresponding account assignment.
