PhD CouncilErasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities


The PhD Council 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.

It is the council's task to advice the Dean of the Graduate School on all matters that affect doctoral education. So if you have a question, problem or good idea, do not hesitate to contact one of them; every idea and initiative is more than welcome!
