Supervisors and Partners
The role of the supervisor is to integrate the researcher within the selected Research for Global Challenges Institute in order for all parties gain the maximum knowledge and skills from the G@V fellowship. This includes ensuring that the foreseen training-through-research takes place, as well as providing support and guidance to the fellow's professional career development.
Supervisors and co-supervisors, the latter selected from a non-academic partner, play a specific role in monitoring and supporting fellows carrying out their research project. The supervisor(s) also support in drafting a Personal Career Development Plan, which serves as a guide for monitoring research and training progresses and achievements during the postdoctoral Programme.
The candidate can include in the proposal the name of his/her potential supervisor. If a proposal is not fitting with the background of the selected supervisor, the Scientific Advisory Board will find a more suitable match.
All supervisors are high-profile active researchers in areas relevant to G@V, and with extensive experience in supervising fellows, a top track record and a rich research portfolio.
