Online Masterclass

“What I wish I had known as a PhD researcher”

Wednesday 26th of Jan | 16.00 – 17.00h

Ever wondered, am I doing this PhD right?

PhD Masterclass

What I wish I had known as a junior (PhD) scientist

In this online Masterclass, I share 9 situations with you in which “I wish I had…” because I have been there too. I share my lessons learned during my years as a PhD researcher, so that you will benefit from my lessons.

This is for you when:

  • You are a PhD student
  • You feel you could use a little extra support
  • You find yourself wondering about what is normal and what’s not
  • You would like to feel more relaxed about your work

The Masterclass will be given on Microsoft Teams. Please mark your agenda, so that you can be there!

I am holding a PhD myself, so I know academia

Hi there, I am Tonke.


I am a scientist myself, holding a PhD in medical engineering from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. Now I am doing a part-time postdoc at a Dutch hospital and I help PhD students become independent and confident researchers.

I know exactly what struggles you are dealing with, because I have been there myself. That’s why I can help you!

I would love to join!

You will feel more in control about your PhD



You will leave with many practical tips you can start implementing right away



Your confidence about your ability as a PhD researcher will be increased
