The new face of communications: Archaeology alumnus Marten Jesse Pot

Starting this month, the faculty has a new communications staff member. Not an entirely new face, Marten Jesse Pot studied archaeology at our faculty and, last year, he functioned as temporary website editor.

Achieving our goals with communications

“I will be responsible for communications in its broadest sense: internal as well as external communications, which include the (prospective) student’s websites, the research pages, news, activities (for example creating an event calendar), and social media.

My challenge is to let communications help our community in achieving its goals, be it in education or research. In order to achieve this I need everyone’s help to feed me with information, news items, photographs, video’s, and ideas. If you would like to know who I am, please check my personal page or feel free to drop by at my office, or invite me to your office. I am most keen to get to know you and the faculty better.”

“In my spare time, I am involved in activities related to Roman heritage in the Netherlands. During the annual Dutch Romeinenweek (Romans Week) I organise Roman related bicycle tours through the region.”


In January, Marten Jesse is present at the faculty on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. From February onwards he will be here daily. If he is around, the door of his room A2.24 is always open.
