As a PhD candidate you will conduct research within one or two research groups in our institute. IMM employs more than 150 PhD candidates. It is our mission to train you to the next generation of leaders in science and innovation. You will be directly involved in IMM’s multidisciplinary research and can make use of our unique research facilities.
PhD trajectory overview
At the start of your PhD, you will write a Training & Supervision Plan (TSP) and Project Plan (PP). The Training & Supervision plan includes themes like research strategy, frequency of contacts with the supervisors, courses to be followed and teaching tasks. The Project Plan describes the planned research and the applied methods. Radboud University uses the program Hora Finita to monitor all running PhD trajectories. In principle, after 48 months (full time employment) your PhD project is completed. When finalizing your PhD, your thesis manuscript will be submitted to the Manuscript Committee. After approval of the Manuscript Committee, you will defend your thesis before a Doctoral Examination Board.
