Since January 2023 the PhD coordination and administration has moved away from AIMMS back to the departments – in accordance with VU policy.
For Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPS), dr. Daan Geerke and Yvette Schipper will be the PhD coordinators. Yvette Schipper will be the point of contact for new (and current) PhD students for all questions. She will be your new contact person and you can reach her via: email@example.com
For the groups that will be part of A-LIFE, Jurgen Haanstra will remain the PhD coordinator. From January onwards you can reach him via: firstname.lastname@example.org
What does this mean for the AIMMS PhD students that started before January 2023?
Not much: your TSP and all the current regulations will remain valid for you. Jurgen will remain the PhD coordinator for all other PhD students. Yvette will be the new contact person for CPS PhD students. Jurgen and Yvette will be in close contact about the TSPs and portfolios of PhD students that started under AIMMS and they will also still be able to contact Jurgen for the remainder of their PhD program when they want to (via his new email address).
What does this mean for new PhD Students that start after January 2023?
Their PhD trajectories will be handled via the departments. In the beginning the old AIMMS regulation will apply, but they may be further adapted within the respective departments over time.
