Supervisor of the Year Award

During the next OZSW Conference on 11 and 12 December in Amsterdam, the OZSW PhD Council will hand out the famous Best Supervisor Award for the second time. If you feel your supervisor deserves to win it, let us know!

We think it is important that all students receive high quality supervision. To emphasize this undervalued aspect of a PhD, we will make sure it gets the attention it deserves by celebrating and honoring the Best Supervisor of the Year.

Send us your story, explaining what your supervisor does to make him/her stand out. We will then choose the story that convinces us most. Do you need inspiration? See here for a list with possible criteria. All supervisors can be nominated, including those who are not officially your promotors. The one who wins, gets his/her name engraved on the Trophy and will be able to keep the Trophy in his/her office for a year. Also, he/she will be interviewed, which will be published on the OZSW website (see the interview with the last winner). And last but not least, there will be an extra surprise – even apart from the eternal fame and glory!

The deadline is November 6, 2015. Send your nomination to
