How to Become A PhD

1 EC

On the 12th of December 2016, ARCHON is organizing a workshop meant especially for RMA students entitled: How to become a PhD student. The workshop will take place at the University of Amsterdam. This day will be organized with the aim to offer information about different PhD-trajectories to RMA-students. Questions such as what kind of PhD-positions there are, how to apply for these and how to write an application will be discussed.

We will start at 11:00 with an introductory talk by the director of ARCHON, dr. Alexander Geurds as well as a presentation by someone who has experience judging proposals. This will be followed by a tutorial on how to write a PhD-proposal by Dr. Jorrit Kelder, who assisted both academic scientists and companies with obtaining grants and subsidies. In the afternoon there will be presentations by people that were granted a position, the PhD-students themselves.

For those who take this as an opportunity to gain credits: The assignment will be to write a one-page PhD-proposal for 1 EC.

Please note that there is only a limited number of places available (ca. 20). You can register for this workshop by sending an email.
