Finding a suitable supervisor
You can usually find a suitable supervisor by consulting several sources of information. In most cases you will find several researchers who might be potential supervisors for your doctoral project. It is therefore necessary to speak to potential supervisors personally to find out who is willing to supervise you and who you would like to be your supervisor. You can make contact with them by first contacting the dean's office of the faculty or department or by contacting the professor directly.
Whichever option you choose, you should be very well prepared for a meeting with a potential supervisor. As well as asking questions about the content of your project, it is advisable to find out about the organisational aspect of supervision, for example the scope and regularity of meetings with your supervisor. The scope and regularity of meetings with supervisors and other formalities should be defined in a supervision agreement, which in many cases is required by the doctoral regulations.
