Nicole Schulp, MSc, currently works as Coordinator Management Information at the AISSR (Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research) of the University of Amsterdam. As coordinator she is responsible for the synchronisation and optimisation of the various management systems (regarding input, output, acquisition, finances, PhD completion and success rates, societal relevance etc.) in accordance with evaluation protocols and report formats (mainly the Standard Evaluation Protocol, SEP) . In 2013-2014 she coordinated the data collection for four major national disciplinary research assessments; Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science and Human Geography, Planning and International Development Studies.
Nicole studied Cultural Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam and graduated in 2004 (cum laude) focusing on the learning path ‘Representation’ (Language and Culture). Examples of the thematic courses she followed include: Material Culture, The Multimedial Text, Photography and Anthropology, Processes of Inclusion and Exclusion. In her Master thesis she explored the representation of human cloning in media (discourse analysis of newspaper articles), analysed films on the subject and interviewed geneticists, identical twins and possible future consumers of these new technologies. In addition to the anthropological courses Nicole followed several introductory and practical modules of Museum Studies and was involved in the preparation of an overview exhibition of the various university collections at the Zoological Museum of the University of Amsterdam (which also led to a contribution in the exhibition catalogue). Although her current position is not an academic one, she uses her free time to academically explore topics to her interest.
