Welcome

We offer our PhD candidates a  full or part-time interdisciplinary training program that can be tailor-made to meet specific research and career perspectives.
 
During your PhD, you will focus on scientific research culminating in the defense of a PhD thesis, but it is also important to use this opportunity for self-development. Therefore, your PhD training can also focus on research skills and knowledge as well as competences required to take your next career step. The RIMLS PhD program is recognized by the KNAW.
