WIAS has a confidential advisor who can be the first resort for postdocs who experience problems in their project or in their contact with supervisors. All information shared is treated confidentially and action will only be taken with the consent of the postdoc. The advisor can refer you to one of the specialised WUR advisors when relevant.
WIAS confidential advisor: Nicole Rodenburg
Postdocs can ask their HR advisor about matters concerning legal status, tax and pension rights, and other issues affecting them as employees.
Unwanted behaviour: Complaints concerning unwanted behaviour can be filed with the counsellor and eventually submitted to the complaints committee for unwanted behaviour.
Research integrity: WU has two confidential counsellors for Research Integrity who can be contacted in case of suspected fraud, plagiarism or other scientific misconduct.
More information about the confidential counsellors and their contact details can be found on the intranet: Support & Mediation.

The occupational social workers can help with problems related to a postdocs work or private life and will seek, together with the postdoc, the most suitable solution to his/her problem.
