Attention supervisors! We invite you to join the online discussions in the series 'Challenges for supervisors' we are organising for you!
On 9 November we launched a new series called Conversation with the Dean. The subject of the first session was ‘Dealing with your supervisor’. Our dean Liesbet van Zoonen and the participating PhD candidates discussed the various outcomes of the recent EUR survey about PhD progress and well-being and the mutual expectations between supervisors and PhD candidate.
To further stimulate and reward PhD research, the Graduate School invites its PhD candidates and recent graduates to submit their work and nominate their colleagues and supervisors for the "Graduate School Awards for PhD Excellence". The deadline for submission is Monday 20 December 2021.
Time and again, surveys among PhD candidates show that the relations with their supervisors are not always easy and satisfactory. On the other hand, sometimes candidates have unrealistic expectations and ideas. This session of Conversations with the Dean is meant as a further exploration of such issues.
