Renewed SILS PhD/PD council website:
We updated our website and will be more active in updating the news and events. The site was not getting much visitors and we will try to change this by adding more up-to-date information. If you have any comments on the site please contact us.
Changes in the 'ius promovendi':
The Dutch Senate (Eerste kamer) approved a bill which contains amongst other things the expansion of the UvA staff that are allowed to promote PhD students. At the moment only full professors are allowed to do this. For a more elaborate (dutch) explanation and a reaction from the Dean go here.
