Prospective PhD candidates TILT
TILT is interested in recruiting talented PhD-candidates. We warmly invite PhD-candidates for internal positions, external PhD-candidates and scholarship PhD-candidates to inquire about the possibilities of doing a PhD at TILT. All TILT PhD candidates are expected to conduct research within one or more areas identified by TILT’s research program.
The Netherlands is one of the few countries in Europe, and the world, where PhD candidates are employees of the university. In most countries, they are treated as students, or have to pay for their time as PhD students through a scholarship.
Importantly, doing a PhD in the Netherlands means that you can start any time, there’s no enrolment tied to the academic year. A first year assessment will decide whether your contract will be prolonged.
Candidates with their own funding
Candidates with their own funding (scholarships, own funds, etc.) are invited to submit applications and declarations of interest throughout the academic year. Please see the application section on how to apply.
Candidates without funding
High-quality candidates without funding are regularly recruited via PhD vacancy announcements on the TILT website and academic vacancies websites to conduct research on TILT projects with a funded PhD position. This can either by a PhD position that is being funded by a grant or a position funded by Tilburg Law School (a so-called TIRO-position). Regarding the latter, please see this website for more information. Finally, if there are no vacancies, you might consider writing a research proposal that fits the TILT-themes and contact us. Please see the application section on how to apply.
