1.746 ondertekeningen

PhDs and Postdocs in the Netherlands are facing critical issues, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Universities and research institutes have suspended their main activities impacting severely the ability of PhDs and Postdocs to conduct their research. Contract extensions would solve these issues!

constateren

  • Many PhDs and Postdocs
  • are physically prevented from working, since universities and institutes are mostly closed
  • experience more workload, since they support universities in off-campus teaching by setting-up online courses
  • see their physical and mental health severely affected which prevents focus on research
  • do not have a suitable home office
  • spend more time on practical concerns as e.g. managing childcare in case they are parents

 

en verzoeken

  • Guarantee funding extension for PhD and Postdoc contracts in the Netherlands, for as long as the COVID-19 measures and closures of universities and research institutes continue
  • Encourage all Dutch universities to take a similar approach, ideally coordinating with them to ensure that no student is unfairly disadvantaged by this crisis.
