ALTERATIONS: Due to the coronacrisis we need to make some changes in the program of this ceremony. Instead of a physical meeting we will invite a top 3 of the nominees and their PhD candidates for a online session where we will announce the winner of the award. This will be shared afterwards.
The jury will consist of:
- Marishka Neekilappillai: PhD candidate, chair PhDoc Leiden and also involved in setting up the Golden rules for supervision in Leiden;
- Prof. Eric Eliel, professor of Quantum optics at Leiden University and also involved in setting up the Golden rules for supervision in Leiden;
- Prof. Mike Jetten, biologist, professor of ecological microbiology at Radboud University Nijmegen and former SotY winner.
Since 2014, PNN awarded a PhD supervisor with the supervisor of the year award during the national PhD day. This year we continue this tradition by handing out the national Supervisor of The Year award during a mini symposium, themed ‘Supervision, the right way’. A keynote speaker will discuss on different ways of supervision before the award ceremony. This award differs from other awards in the way that it is the only national and all-discipline award. To celebrate the winner, drinks will be provided afterwards.
Can you always rely on your supervisor? Is he or she outstanding when it comes to communication? Gives great feedback and deserves to win this award?
