Introduction of the board 2010/2011 [return to top]

The current board will be succeeded by 5 new board members whom we would like to introduce to you below.

The PhD Academy has a rather loose structure and heavily relies on the active involvement of a large number of volunteers. The primary objectives of the PhD Academy board consist of the coordination of committees, promoting and supporting PhD Academy events, and taking care of the finances and other executive tasks. Currently, the Board consists of two members: Stéphanie van Nispen and Siu Hing Lo. They will be succeeded by Alejandro Lavopa, Tanja Dorresteijn, Michael Kaisers, Iryna Rud, and Nevena Zhelyazkova.

Alejandro and Nevena will coordinate the communication between the committees and the board. They will support the organization of events and activities and answer any relevant questions. Tanja will take care of finances and advise the committees on budgetary issues. Michael and Iryna will help promote the activities and foster visibility of the PhD Academy. Furthermore, they will use various media to encourage vivid communication between all friends of the PhD Academy.

Get to know us in person by visiting the general member meeting or any of the upcoming events.
