  PhD Day

For all theoretical physicists that are young at heart!

The DRSTP PhD Student Council is organizing a meeting focused on the younger researchers in the Research School.
On this 10th edition of the PhD Day you will hear inspiring talks from PhD students in several areas of theoretical physics and beyond.
Just like previous editions, the PhD Day is also the right moment to meet old friends and make new ones, to share the joys and pains of being a scientist.
Also for Master's students the PhD Day is a great opportunity to meet PhD students from all over the Netherlands and find out about research at other universities.
