From 11 March 2023 to 17 March 2023, the members of the Graduate Academy Leipzig were able to elect their representatives to the Board.

Within the group of doctoral researchers, the members decided on a female double leadership: Luisa Klatte won the election with 47.5% of the votes, followed by Andrea Lösel (20.3%). Both will be members of the Board of the Graduate Academy Leipzig from 1 April 2024.

In the group of postdocs, the result was not quite as clear-cut: Angela Calderon and Anne Mareike Möller received the same number of votes. Anne Mareike Möller had more luck in the lottery and was appointed to the Board.

In total, 12.7% of the 495 eligible members voted. While the turnout among doctoral researchers was 13.3%, only 8% of postdocs voted.

We congratulate Luisa Klatte, Andrea Lösel and Anne Mareike Möller and look forward to working with them in the future.
