About the group

The PhD House Activity Group is a volunteer group of PhD students and postdocs that organizes activities in the PhD House, primarily aimed at PhD students and postdocs. 

The group cooperates with the other PhD Associations about organizing academic and social events, such as music events, PhD Cafés and after work meetings. The group is always interested in co-organizing events with other associations or supporting events financially as well as with advertising. If you are interested in cooperating with the group about a project you are more than welcome to contact the board.

Our activities are normally held in or near the PhD House and International Centre at Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 4, 8000 Aarhus C. There are occasional where we move to larger venues or hold events around the city of Aarhus.

All of our events are held in English.

If you want to know more about our future events you can join our Facebook page and stay updated with relevant information.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

Do you want to join PhD House Activity Group?

PhD House Activity Group is a cross faculty organization for PhD Students and Postdocs at AU.

We therefore encourage researchers from all faculties to join our board and help us reach as many people as possible.

The PhD House Activity Group is always looking for new crew members to strengthen our team and contribute to our work.

So if you have great ideas, maybe a hobby or passion that you think your fellow PhD’s or postdocs share, if you are willing to devote some of your free time for us, if you are craving to be a part and contribute to the social environment at Aarhus University, and most of all, if you are enthusiastic about an amazing PhD or Postdoc life, JOIN US!

Not only can you gain some great experience working with your fellow researchers, but also harvest new friends, networks, other views and understandings of PhD life.

We are looking for a new board member who is interested in volunteering for 6 month term on the board and help us improve the researcher’s environment at Aarhus University. Our board members are oficially elected at the bi-annual general assembly, but in the meantime you are always welcome to get a feel of the work in the group by attending a board meeting.

If you are not interested in joining the board, you can also contribute by letting us know which events you would like in the future. All ideas and suggestions are welcomed!

The next general assembly will be held in December 2016
