PhD Workshop

Please download the PhD workshop call for proposals.

What:

Pre ERNOP conference workshop for PhD students with an interest in philanthropy.

In this workshop, PhD students will get the chance to present their research project and receive feedback. Tobias Jung (University of St. Andrews), Jeff Brudney (University of North Carolina Wilmington), and Georg von Schnurbein (University of Basel) will mentor a selection of PhD candidates in different stages of their dissertation research.

Participants will be asked to hand in prior to the workshop a short abstract (500 words) of their research project and a short summary (300 words) of the main topic they want to discuss at the workshop. These abstracts will be distributed to all participants in advance.

The participants will be grouped by advancement of their project, e.g. early stage (year 1-2) and advanced (year 3+).

Every PhD student gets 30 minutes (10 minutes presentation/ 20 minutes discussion). The idea is that the PhD students pitch one or two topics that they are concerned with at the moment. At the end of the workshop, faculty members will discuss how to deal with reviewer responses in the publication process and the workshop will end with a section of Q&A for general issues of writing a PhD or other relevant issues.

When:

Full-day workshop on July 3rd, 2019

The pre ERNOP conference workshop for PhD students will take place at the ‘Old University’ of the University of Basel, the first university building since 1460, right at the Rhine shore.
