PhD training programme

ENTEG provides integrated upper-level graduate training consisting of practical research training, courses, workshops, and multidisciplinary research projects.

The programme regularly consists of approximately 3,5 years of research training and 0,5 year of courses and other training activities.

Such PhD-positions come throughout the year and are within a set research theme or are part of a larger research project. Such positions often are advertised at the University website under ‘Job opportunities at the University of Groningen’. If you wish to apply for a position that is posted on the Job Opportunities website, you will need to follow the procedure described in the advertisement.
