PhD Council RIHSThe RIHS PhD Council represents the interests of PhD candidates within the Institute and acts as a liaison between the Institute's management team and its PhD candidates.
The Council has regular meetings with the Institute's scientific director and scientific managers. Furthermore, they participate in committees like the Training and Supervision Committee of the Institute, and have direct links with:
- PhD council of the Radboud Institute of Molecular Life Sciences
- PhD council of Donders Centre for Neuroscience
- PhD Organization Nijmegen, PON;
- Radboudumc Postdoc Initiative (RPI)
Through the Institute's website and via newsletters and email the Council aims to provide the RIHS PhD candidates with relevant information about subjects that might be of interest to them, such as important rules and regulations, developments within the Institute, relevant courses and activities.
The PhD Council organizes an annual two-day retreat. It provides an ideal opportunity to present study results or research plans to fellow PhD candidates. Besides scientific content and workshops/masterclasses, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues and keynote speakers.see upcoming PhD retreat
The council regularly organizes workshops for PhD candidates. Together with the PhD councils of other research institutes, Radboudumc-wide workshops are organized.
Last but not least, the Council provides opportunities for PhD candidates to get to know each other by organising social activities and informative events like lectures, workshops or lunch meetings.
