A. SUPERVISION TEAMS
In accordance with article 3.10.2 of the university’s Doctorate Regulations, every PhD candidate has at least one supervisor plus a second (co-)supervisor. The supervisor(s) is (are) from the Faculty of Theology. The College of Deans can appoint a professor from another Dutch university or a foreign institution as the supervisor. In this case, the College appoints a professor of the Faculty as the second supervisor.
The main supervisor must have ius promovendi, i.e. he or she has the rank of full professor (hoogleraar) or associate professor (universitair hoofddocent). A team of supervisors can consist of up to four members. Except for the main supervisor(s), the members of the team can consist of assistant/associate professors, full professors and/or experts with a doctorate degree. The function of the (team of) supervisor(s) is to supervise the process of writing, and to monitor your process regarding the requirements determined in your Training and Supervision Plan.
B. RESEARCH GROUPS
Supervision takes place in close connection with our departments' six research groups. The research groups provide the ideal context for intervision and presentations of work-in-progress. Each research proposal must be presented in a research group before it can be submitted to the promotion committee.
Texts & Traditions (Head of Department: Prof. Matthias Smalbrugge)
- Hebrew Bible and Computer Assisted Analysis (Prof. Wido van Peursen)
- New Testament and Early Christianity (Prof. Bert Jan Lietaert Peerbolte)
- Church History (Prof. Mirjam van Veen)
Beliefs & Practices (Head of Department: Prof. Gijsbert van den Brink)
C. INTERVISION GROUPS
As part of your training programme, the Graduate School also encourages the formation of (interdisciplinary) intervision groups. For an example of how such a group (ad hoc or regular) can be structured and assessed, see the list of electives under Training and Supervision Programme.
