Student Representatives

Maximilian Dreer

As a student representative I'd like to openly talk about and discuss the often overlooked and rarely mentioned precariousness of scientific personnel, specifically PhD students.

Max is currently in his first official year as a PhD student at the Schleper Group - Department of Functional Ecology and Evolution - working with soil Archaea linked to the global nitrogen cycle.

Constanze Schattke

Since a PhD is rarely achieved alone, but with the help of a supportive network – be it private or professional – my focus as a student representative is to encourage and support interdisciplinary engagement among young (female) scholars, professors and disciplines.

Constanze is a PhD student at the Department of Anthropology, Natural History Museum Vienna and the VDSEE Vienna. She is researching the provenance of human remains originating from violent acquisition contexts, combining methods from bioarchaeology, osteology and archival history.

Daniel Martinovic Saavedra

As a student representative I would like to make sure that the available resources in the VDSEE are allocated with fairness and integrity, always in the best interest of our students.

Daniel is in his first year as an PhD student at the Fungal & Biogeochemical Oceanography Group - Department of Functional Ecology and Evolution. He is specialised in alkaline phosphatases involved in the marine phosphorus cycle.

Oliver Link

If you struggle to fight yourself through the PhD jungle, feel free to pass by.

I am a PhD Student at the Department of Neurosciences and Developmental Biology, but affiliated with the molevodevo group of Uli Technau. My project deals with the origin and evolution of striated muscle cells in the animal kingdom. Therefore, I use basal branching animals like cnidarians or ctenophores as my working models.
