To further stimulate and reward PhD research, the Graduate Schools invites its PhD candidates and recent graduates to submit their work and nominate their colleagues for the "Graduate School Awards for PhD Excellence". The deadline for submission is December 21 (Friday) 2018.
By facilitating doctoral education to over 500 PhD candidates in a total of 10 academic fields the Graduate School nurtures research excellence and a vibrant academic community. To provide aspiring PhD researchers with an efficient application service, the Graduate School uses an online application procedure. Visit our admission page for a step-by-step guide.
The Graduate School is an Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) joint venture of the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB), the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC), the Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS).
The PhD Council of EGSH is a platform by and for PhDs that are part of the Graduate School. The Council was founded on the premise that the opinions, questions, issues, and thoughts of each of its members merit being heard and discussed. To this end each participating department in the Graduate School has a seat in the Council by means of one representative.
The Graduate School has developed a PhD handbook for beginning PhD candidates. It includes practical guides on how to get started, the EUR doctoral regulations and much more. We consider the handbook to be an essential support tool for beginning PhD candidates. Hard copies of the handbook are available at the Graduate School office (Mandeville building, T15-33) and all departmental secretary offices.
December is a month that is full of festivities and rituals. While, of old, such rituals are meant to bring communities together, the December month has instead become a bone of contention and a source of stress. These are the issues we will address in the Dean’s Master Class. The assignment for this master class will centre on the design of an inclusive December ritual to celebrate the closure of the old and the coming of the New Year.
Erasmus Magazine (EM) is pleased to invite EGSH PhD candidates to the first ‘EM & PhD Pizza’ session on Tuesday, 11 December, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The get-together is intended to encourage open dialogue between EM’s editorial team and PhD candidates at Erasmus University Rotterdam. While this may result in new ideas for interesting articles, our main reason for organising the evening is that we’d like to hear your stories and get to know you better.
The method Synthetron can be described as a sophisticated online discussion tool to do focus groups with (potentially) very large groups and participants who may even be located in different places across the nation or the world. In a 1-hour seminar, Leo Dijkema will present the method and participants will be able to practice with and experience the method themselves.
