PhD Information

The NSCR has its own PhD committee, chaired by Marleen Kragting, Danielle Stibbe, Valerie Pijlman and Mathilde van Oudenaren. The committee is for all PhDs working at the NSCR (so also when you are, for instance, on the VU payroll). They regularly organize meetings, knowledge exchange sessions, and of course drinks (see the agenda below). Do you have a good idea for a PhD meeting, would you like some feedback, or do you just have a question? You can reach them via phdmeetings@nscr.nl.

Confidential advisers

The confidential advisers for PhDs are Marco Last, MLast@nscr.nl (Grant Adviser) and Koosje Heurter, KHeurter@nscr.nl (Science Communication). You can contact them with questions, concerns – both private and work-related – or just because you want to vent. Please, do not hesitate to get in touch!

Grants and career opportunities

If you have questions about grants or career opportunities after your PhD, within or outside academia, you can also contact Marco Last via MLast@nscr.nl.
