Duties of the PhD supervisor

Good mentorship

PhD supervisors must be fully aware of the UvA Doctoral Regulations and the AMC Further Regulations. They shall be available for their PhD candidates, be clear and consistent in their supervision, and critically review results achieved. Supervisors shall fulfil their expected duties for doctoral education and always strive towards equal treatment by actively counteracting all forms of discrimination and harassment.

Supervisors are requested to give special attention to the AMC-VUmc Research Code, in which a chapter about Good Mentorship provides specific information about the duties of all mentors (including the specific duties of PhD supervisors) and about the duties of junior researchers/PhD candidates.

See also chapter 2 of the AMC-VUmc Research Code about Good Mentorship.
