PhD discussion round – Supervisors

25-10-2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Hey fellows!

This October we are organizing a second round of PhD discussion. Those discussion are open to every PhDs and aim to share our experiences in a safe and kind atmosphere.

All possible topics pass-by the conversations at the LEO-drinks. And we noticed that many of us can talk endlessly about his or her supervisor. Some supervisors are awesome, others a pure nightmare. We can all agree that the quality of your supervisor can either make or break your PhD.

For this PhD Discussion Round we go into more details about supervisors. What they do right, wrong, how their supervision can be improved – basically any topic concerning them. For sure that we can learn from each others experiences, and even raise awareness at executive levels about issues we encountered.

What’s more is that we have Nick den Hollander joining us for this event. Nick is Senior Policy Officer Research at the university, and so provides the direct link between any issues coming up during our discussion and policy making at university level. So the things we talk about are also actually heard!

Do you want to share or are you interested in your fellow PhDs stories? Come join us! We provide the snacks and drinks, no worries!

We really hope to see you there! For our and the next generations of PhDs it is very important to be aware of all the issues surrounding PhD-life.
