GSLS PhD Supervision Event 2022

to

Hybrid relationships & how to handle them

An event for both PhD supervisors and PhD candidates including the festive announcement of the Supervisor and Daily Supervisor of the Year Award 2022.

 

Each year the PhD Council of the Graduate School of Life Sciences announces the PhD Supervisor (promotor) and Daily Supervisor (co-promotor) of the Year. To honor this important award, they organise an event on supervision including a festive award ceremony. They selected a theme that became very important during the covid pandemic: Hybrid relationships.

Supervision is one of the key factors influencing the course of the PhD journey. PhD surveys indicate that a professional relationship between PhD candidates and supervisors is pivotal for a successful PhD journey. Within the GSLS we aim to provide support for both the PhD candidate and the supervisors to help them in building a good and professional relationship. A good and frequent communication, management of expectations and giving and receiving feedback are crucial components of this relationship. Because supervision is such an important component, the GSLS PhD Council organises an event focusing completely on supervision. An event for both supervisors and PhD candidates.

The Award

Thank you to all PhD candidates that nominated their (daily) supervisor. We received many nominations! They thought their (daily) supervisor is a brilliant scientist, a role model, accessible, enthusiastic, or just great in any other way. By nominating their (daily) supervisor they show their appreciation for their way of supervision and we would like to inspire other supervisors to guide their PhD candidates in the best way possible.

The Supervisor of the Year Committee (Dario Cramer, Fleur Froeling, Pauline Kiss and Danique van Rijswijck) has selected several nominations and subsequently interviewed the PhD candidate that nominated the (daily) supervisor. The Committee then selected a Supervisor of the Year and Daily Supervisor of the Year, based on the interviews and personal motivations of the PhD candidates.
