Start your PhD

During the PhD track PhD candidates conduct a research project resulting in a PhD thesis and a series of articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. PhD candidates are supervised by a professor ('promotor') and a co-supervisor ('copromotor').

Furthermore, PhD candidates receive training in thematic research areas (the PhD programmes) and professional development (general courses) at the Graduate School of Life Sciences. The broad variety of thematic courses, seminars, masterclasses, symposia, general courses and career services on offer results in highly qualified PhDs, well prepared for a career inside or outside academia.
