International Experience Clinic

On Monday 12 June (15:00 – 16:30, Bushuis/OIH E1.02) ASH will host a Clinic on International Experience for its PhD candidates and early career scholars.

During the clinic, senior members of ASH Dr Danielle van den Heuvel and Dr Martijn Icks will share their experiences and best practices when it comes to gaining international experience during and after your PhD. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, along with coffee, tea and biscuits. 

Before starting her Vidi project at the UvA in 2016, Danielle van den Heuvel (Early Modern History, PhD 2007 UU) held research fellowships at Girton College and the Faculty of Economics at the University of Cambridge and she taught at the School of History of the University of Kent (Canterbury). 

Martijn Icks (Ancient History, PhD 2008 RU) worked as a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Heidelberg, as a research fellow at the University of Düsseldorf and as a lecturer at Queen’s University Belfast before coming to Amsterdam in 2016.

ASH director Liz Buettner (Modern History) will chair the meeting and will offer advice based her own experience of having worked in the US, the UK and Germany.

Similar to the other ASH clinics, this is an opportunity to get advice from experienced scholars in your own field.
