Proud about your work as a PhD candidate? Show first-year bachelor’s students during one week how much fun it is to do research in the activity 'Meet-the-PhD'.

We are looking for PhD candidates who want to help first years’ biomedical bachelor students in the first steps of their scientific development. The teaching activity Meet-the-PhD is directly related to the daily activities of a PhD candidate and offers a perfect opportunity to become involved in teaching. If you are interested, please discuss this with your supervisor and contact us before November 1st (see below).

Why and when

The goal of the Meet-the-PhD programme is for first years’ BMS students to gain experience in daily research practice and to reflect on their professional ambitions. We need PhD candidates who welcome one or a couple of BSc students in their research groups and accommodate them for a week on the work floor. The mini-internships will be organized in three one-week periods in February and March 2020.
  • Thursday February 13th – Wednesday February 19th
  • Monday March 9th – Friday March 13th
  • Monday March 23rd – Friday March 27th
PhD candidates can choose themselves with how many colleagues they will supervise the students, what they want to offer the students during the mini-internship and how many students they are willing to host in which of three one-week period(s). Afterwards, the students write a reflection report about their experiences for their coach.

Invitation

If you or your research group are enthusiastic about supervising BSc students, please contact us before November 1st via Yasmin.Leenderts@radboudumc.nl. Please include the period or periods in which you could welcome first years students, how many students you could accommodate and in which research institute your PhD project is embedded. Your department will receive a financial compensation for this activity. Please make sure your supervisor knows you will participate!
