The event is specially organized for (and by) PhD-candidates of AMS and aims to meet and learn from each other. New in this year’s edition of the PhD-day is that you can compete for the prestigious Amsterdam Movement Sciences ‘PhD project presentation of the year’-award. In the attachment you can find more information, the deadline to sign up for this day and for submitting an abstract to qualify for the award is the 1st of October 2018.

Attendance at the AMS PhD-day is compulsory if you want to obtain the AMS contribution to printing costs for your thesis.

The program for new PhD candidates (started after April 2018) starts a little earlier to learn more about our institute.

We hope to see you in October!
