The elections for the University Council will be held this coming May 2016. PhDoc is looking for interested internal PhDs who would like to take part in the co-participation.
Last year we were able to persuade the Executive Board not to participate in the experiment with bursary students and this coming year we will be discussing how to improve the graduate schools, education for and by PhDs, and better preparation for the job market.
As a member of the University Council you receive a contract for 0,2 fte for each year term which basically means your PhD contract is extended by several months. The university encourages PhDs to take part and has asked supervisors to support interested PhDs.
If you have any questions or are interested in joining our team then let Gareth know via
email@example.com before this coming Sunday 6 March 2016!
