Dr. Mónica López López is awarded PNN PhD Supervisor of the Year award 2019-2020. PNN, th e PhD candidate Network of the Netherlands, awards this prize annually to reward good supervision of PhD candidates.

Mónica López López, associate professor Youth Care at the faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences at the University of Groningen, stood out for the jury because of the versatility of her supervision. She assists her PhD candidates in various aspects: not only in successfully completing their PhD trajectory, but also in building up a network and gaining relevant experiences. She also pays a lot of attention to their work-life balance and keeps a close eye on the mental health of her PhDs. At the same time, she is not only concerned with the well-being of her own PhDs, but also committed to the overall wellbeing of the PhD community, and is a welcomed speaker at local PhD days.

Dr. López López was honoured to receive the award. She elaborately thanked her PhDs: “If I am any good at supervising, it is mostly because of their kind feedback and the many lessons on academic solidarity that they teach me every day.”

Next to Mónica López López, Prof. Bert Meijbloem (UT) and Prof. Nathaniel Martin (UL) were also nominated for the award, which earned them an honorable mention as excellent supervisors. Due to the corona measures, the Supervisor of the Year award was presented digitally in an online ceremony.
