How to obtain a PhD position

The first step is to locate a researcher who could supervise you for your PhD studies. If we do not have research expertise in your area, Groningen would not be the place for you. Your acceptance is thus depending on whether we have research expertise, and whether the Principal Investigator working in that area is confident that you have the quality and motivation to become a PhD student. The Graduate School of Medical Sciences (GSMS) may then offer different opportunities to you as a prospective PhD student.

You may browse an overview of the UMCG research departments to see if our topics match with your interests and contact the Principal Investigator yourself or have us introduce you. In any case always include an English-language CV and a summary of your research expertise in your communications.
