TU/e and its industrial partners are looking for 250 PhD candidates with a passion for research and innovation
Together with its partners in industry and research, TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) is looking for 250 extra PhD candidates in the coming year. The university is investing a total of more than € 23 million for this purpose, and is making available the required accommodation and facilities. Companies and fellow research institutes are investing a further € 30-40 million.
Through 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. These are fields in which numerous companies and organizations in the Brainport region are working on innovative solutions. TU/e and its partners aim in this way to reverse the decline in numbers of PhD candidates resulting from the pressure on government funding.
PhD candidates carry out scientific research at a university over a four-year period, after which they write their doctoral thesis. In those four years the researchers generate new scientific knowledge. TU/e announced at the beginning of 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 to this funding. 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.
The PhD positions will become available in the following clusters:
