PNN National PhD Day Committee Looking for more members

Are you looking for ways to increase your organizational skills, expand your network, and have a great time working on a very relevant project? Apply now for the organizing committee of the 2015 National PhD day!

As the first PNN National PhD day ( was well-received, plans have been put in place to organize a second edition (scheduled for the end of November) and a committee has recently been formed to organize this great event. The chair of the National PhD Day Committee is still looking for enthusiastic and motivated people who want to help organize this event (e.g., arranging workshops, finding sponsors).

Positions that are open in the committee are:
– Vice-president
– Treasurer
– 2x external communication (i.e., arranging workshops/ information market)
– Logistics
– Chairman for the supervisor award committee.

Given that the PhD community has many people with organizational experience on local or even national level, we believe it will be a great opportunity for those looking for more experience in organizing an event of this scale at the national level. Speaking Dutch is an advantage, but not a necessity.

If you are interested in being part of this committee, or interested in contributing in any other possible way, then contact the president Anke Versluis of the National PhD Day committee at to receive more information.
