Deadline: Call for HSRI "Cross-Cutting Theme" PhD Position 2024

Date: Time: 23:59 Location: No location

There is an increasing need for studying complex societal problems more integrally, for which we need expertise which crosses the boundaries of a specific department and discipline. To foster and stimulate cross-departmental collaboration and interdisciplinarity within the Tilburg School of Behavioural and Social Sciences (TSB) the Herbert Simon Research Institute (HSRI) invites TSB researchers to participate in an open competition for a total of 3 PhD positions – one in each HSRI cross-cutting theme – “Adaptive societies, organizations, and workers”, “Healthy lifespan”, “Personalized prevention and care”. 

This call is open for all HSRI researchers. Every HSRI researcher can submit only one project as main applicant, and one proposal as co-applicant. Each project needs to fit into one of the cross-cutting themes, and is required to be a collaboration between at least two TSB departments. Please note that the project has to start in 2024. 

Proposals should be sent to Marjolein Triepels, project employee of the Research Support Team. For further information regarding the application and evaluation procedure, please contact Yvonne Brehmer, Floortje Mols or Sasa Batistic
