Performance & Development review PhDs ("PBC")

Annual Performance & Development review PhDs
Once a year, a small committee of staff members – the “Promotie Begeleidingscommissie” (PBC committee) – will discuss research progress with all PhD students and their supervisors.

- Evaluation 1st year PhD’s: 6 month presentation As summarized in the ESP, a ‘go or no-go’ evaluation will be held after ~6 months after the start of the appointment, to access whether or not the appointment is to be continued. The PhD student will present to a small committee an outline of his/her PhD project (30 minutes). This committee consists of the Chair of the PBC, the PhD supervisor, and at least one scientific staff member. The committee will discuss these plans with the student and will provide feedback (annual report). Both the annual report and the presentation slides need to be submitted by the supervisor in the Self Service, together with a Results & Development form.

- Annual evaluation other PhD’s The PBC committee evaluates the progress of each PhD student once a year. Each PhD student should submit an annual progress report, at the latest two days before the interview. For the progress report a template is available which will be mailed to you. The completed form must be sent to Alina Vink at least two working days prior to the interview.

During the interview the PBC committee will first discuss progress with the PhD student (20 minutes), without the presence of the supervisor(s), and will then speak with the supervisor(s), without the presence of the PhD student. The PBC will provide feedback in the form of an annual report. Both the progress report and the annual PBC report need to be submitted by the supervisor in the Self Service together with a R&D form.
