New student representatives:

Martin Schaier

  • „A crucial aspect of the PhD is getting in touch with students from other groups. It helps create more exchange and collaboration and leads to a more welcoming environment. My goal would be to make it easier for new PhD students to get started and to organize more events where the community can be strengthened.

Philip Verdross

  • „I would like to apply to be a student representative to make teaching freer and easier during doctoral studies. I would like to see a simpler and more personalized study for the doctoral students of the University of Vienna and I would like to work for a stronger networking of the individual departments, so that there can be synergies between the experiences gained at the university. In this sense, I would like to advocate for a more open community and teaching at the University of Vienna that is characterized by student participation."

I have gained experience in student representation as a student of University of Zagreb, Croatia. There, I was student representative for 5 years on undergraduate and graduate level, member of ethical committee of Faculty of Science and a student representative in the Faculty Colloquium. Personally, I am interested in working on improving the DosChem program and organise students events."
  • Thesis title: Incorporation of 2′O-PivOM and PrOM RNA Phosphoramidites In RNA Microarray Fabrication by Photolithography for the High-throughput Preparation of High-density RNA Oligonucleotide Libraries
