Together with the Graduate School, the Erasmus University Library has developed a series of e-modules in 'PhD information skills'. This online portal includes training modules in improving research design, optimising literature search techniques and much more.
The upcoming edition of the Dean's Master Class will focus on the research theme 'The Brain' from three disciplinary angles: Psychology, Philosophy and Neuromarketing. The respective speakers are: Professor Ingmar Franken, Professor Heleen Pott, Professor Ale Smidts.
Every year the Graduate School invites its PhD candidates and recent graduates to submit their work for the "Graduate School Award for PhD Excellence". During a festive award ceremony, Graduate School Dean Professor Liesbet van Zoonen and rector magnificus Huibert Pols announced the winners of the 2016 competition.
This three hour workshop focuses on practical aspects of doing your literature review. After completion you will be able to prepare your literature search, organise your references and creating your own 'research information landscape'. The workshop is specifically designed for first year PhD candidates.
After a very successful first edition, the next Erasmus University PhD Career Day will take place on 20 April 2017. The event will be a combination of presentations, skills workshops and private consultancies. You can also have your LinkedIn profile photo taken and have your CV checked by a career advisor.
