UPP is looking for you! University Council elections 2021

As UPP we stand for the rights of PhD candidates, postdocs and other temporary staff. In the University Council, we are in direct conversation with the Executive Board about all university policy, including PhD policy, and have veto-rights on important issues. Next to our focus on PhD rights, we focus in our current programme on the issues of accessibility, sustainability and inclusivity for the university as a whole.

For our next term we additionally look to further the connection with UU’s support and administrative staff (OBP).

We are looking for people that want to join the University Council for UPP in august 2021. University council member is a paid position. You get 0.2 FTE for two years. This comes down to an extension of your contract with 6 months. Besides the extension of your PhD, being a council member is a valuable experience and an opportunity to make a difference. International candidates are very welcome. Besides PhD candidates, we also specifically ask support and administrative staff (OBP) to sign up!
