The ARPH has two great awards for young talent. Receiving such an award is of course rewarding in itself , but it also looks good on the CV, and the winner does not have to pay any membership fee. Seniors play a big role in encouraging young researchers to submit their PhD thesis, and to nominate candidates for the Early Career award. We assume that there are some great talents in every research group. We would like to see them be nominated!
PhD Thesis Award
We invite submissions for the ARPH PhD Award. The award is meant to support young researchers in the field of psychology and health who just received their PhD title. Candidates can apply if they (a) obtained their PhD degree in the calendar year 2022 and (b) have written the thesis in English. Candidates should be member of ARPH (or have applied to become member before the submission deadline). The winner of the award will attend the ARPH conference 2023 and will give a presentation about the PhD thesis at the conference (on March 30th and 31st, 2023). To apply for this award, candidates must submit an electronic version of their PhD thesis to the chair of the jury Dr. Dimitri Van Ryckeghem (Dimitri.VanRyckeghem@maastrichtuniversity.nl) before February 1st, 2023. The winning candidate will be notified by the jury.
Early Career Award
We invite submissions for the ARPH Early Career Award. The award is meant for researchers in the first stage of their independent research career. Applicants must have obtained their doctorate within the last seven years. Nominations can be sent by a senior researcher (Professor or Associate Professor) and with the candidates’ agreement. Nominators and the candidate should be members of ARPH (or have applied to become member before the submission deadline). The nomination should include a letter by the senior researcher and the CV of the candidate. The letter should explain the outstanding scientific and/or societal contribution of the research work done by the candidate. The letter and CV should be sent to the chair of the jury Dr. Kai Karos (firstname.lastname@example.org) before February 1st 2023.
meet a mentor
The ARPH is organizing another “Meet a mentor” programme. At the conference, junior researchers are given the opportunity to schedule a 30-60 minute meeting with a senior researcher (mentor). Before the meeting, the juniors will send a short summary and some questions they would like to discuss.
More information about this programme will follow shortly.
