Social events #Gopherfun

One goal of Gopher is to let PhD students of different research areas meet. Therefore, organising social events is one of our main tasks. Recently, we have organised many different events. Think of events like a skiing trip, camping, gliding, cheese fondue, crazy 88, pub quizzes, bowling, the Groningen day, dancing workshops, potluck dinner and a grande gala in April. To get a good impression of the events, please have a look in our Photos section.
Educational events #Gophersmart
Besides building a social network, Gopher offers workshops and lectures to boost your job as a PhD. Recently, we have organised workshops like a pitching workshop, a CV & Application letter workshop in collaboration with HR/NEXT, various Printing your Thesis workshops, Filing your taxes workshop, Stress Management, Going Abroad Lecture, Personal Branding and a workshop on how to give Feedback in collaboration with our partner Sangbreeta Moitra. Visit our Facebook page to see which educational events have been organised.

Organise an event yourself?
Gopher is an organisation by and for all PhD’s. That means that if you have an idea for an event that you think will be appreciated by fellow PhD’s, you are always welcome to contact us with your idea. Together with the board you can refine your idea, see what is possible and how to organise it. All events are financially supported by Gopher. Among others, this means that you as an organiser get to join the event for free! No idea is too wild or too weird. Contact the board to start making your idea into an event!
