The Graduate School of Geosciences offers Bright Minds Assistantships since 2017. The assistantship programme is offered in addition to Utrecht University’s Bright Minds Fellowships. The aim of these half-year, paid assistantships is to involve you in ongoing scientific projects conducted by academic staff and PhD candidates. This allows you to experience what it takes to do research and to pursue a career in science.
Applications for assistantships starting in February 2020 have closed. Applications for assistantships starting in September 2020 will open mid-April 2020.
Who can apply?
You can apply for an assistantship if you are a (prospective) master's student at the Graduate School of Geosciences. You need to be enrolled in a master's programme during your assistantship. The assistantships are for highly motivated and talented students with a special interest in geoscientific research. They are available to Dutch and EU students, as well as non-EU students.
