Recently, RIMLS held an internal call for Radboudumc junior researcher (PhD) positions.
An external independent multidisciplinary committee, was formed to judge the 33 submitted projects in a two step procedure. The committee reviewed each project based on (a) novelty and innovation; (b) scientific quality; (c) quality of the research group; and (d) relevance for the RIMLS. The projects were subsequently scored by each member of the committee based on the project itself, initial referee comments and your rebuttal letter.
The RIMLS management congratulates the awardees and wishes them the best in conducting their research projects.
