IN THE PICTURE

Schedule meeting with coordinator

For questions related to the DS requirements, DS portfolio, course offer, ... you can now schedule a meeting with one of the coordinators of the DS. Single or simple questions can of course still be asked by email, but for multiple questions this is the preferred approach. 

Buddy trajectory for PhD students

Doing a PhD can be fun and hard at the same time. When you start a PhD, it can be hard to find all relevant and useful information by yourself. During a PhD, everyone experiences ups and downs and everyone needs to tackle problems. These problems can be surprisingly similar for different people. Let it be clear: you are all in the same boat.

PhD trajectories also contain lonely moments; some more than others. To prevent psychological distress and mental health issues (which PhD students seem to be more vulnerable to than others), it is good to have someone to fall back on. Everyone needs someone to talk to from time to time. Talking to a more experienced colleague can be especially useful and reassuring.

For these reasons, there is a buddy trajectory for PhD students. Junior buddies are starting PhD students. Senior buddies are PhD students from their second year on. More information on how to register as a buddy is available here


CALLS 

Call for international & intersectoral mobility

The Flemish government subsidizes the five Flemish universities to provide support and guidance of junior researchers. Specifically, the universities are asked to organize activities with respect to (1) training (discipline-specific, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary), (2) career development, and (3) strengthening the international orientation of junior researchers. Thanks to this financial support, the doctoral schools of Hasselt University are able to award travel grants to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers for participation in an international summer school or a short research stay abroad. Also, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers can be awarded intersectoral mobility grants for intersectoral summer schools or research projects conducted at and in collaboration with non-academic institutions (companies, hospitals, …).

Junior researchers can apply for funding twice a year. The current call concerns activities in the period January - June 2020. The submission deadline is December 2, 2019. You will receive the result of your application by December 16, 2019.
