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. We are commited to improving the position of all junior support and academic staff.

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.
