TU/e and partners looking for 250 PhD candidates

TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) and its industrial and research partners are looking for 250 extra PhD candidates in the coming year. The university is investing more than € 23 million for this purpose. Companies and fellow research institutes will invest a further € 30-40 million in this initiative.

TU/e and its partners aim to strengthen the research partnerships in important areas such as energy, health, mobility, high-tech systems, data science and materials. Numerous companies and organizations are working on innovative solutions in these fields in the Brainport region. TU/e and its partners aim to reverse the decline in numbers of PhD candidates resulting from pressure on government funding.

PhD candidates carry out scientific research at the university over a four-year period and then write their doctoral thesis. During the four years the researchers generate new scientific knowledge. TU/e announced in 2013 that it was allocating € 13 million, and 66 PhD positions have been created with these funds. A further 10 million has now been added and the university is also providing accommodation and facilities. For each PhD position funded by TU/e, companies and fellow research institutes will finance an additional position. The total number of PhD positions will be around 250.
