    XIV Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics

    Summer school for PhD students in high energy theoretical physics

    Summer school for PhD students in high energy theoretical physics

    Welcome to the Doctoral School of Life Sciences and Medicine

    Welcome to this website for the Doctoral School of Life Sciences and Medicine. It is developed to make the academic life of PhD students in Life Sciences and Medicine more efficient and better informed. This website will offer you direct updates on current activities of the Doctoral School, i.e. application for grants, central doctoral regulations, workshop offers.

    The DS in Life Sciences and Medicine wants to support its members in an interactive way in their research, their training and their academic activities. Each academic year, our Doctoral School has the ambition to offer structure, support and follow-up to its members. By doing so, it wants to improve the process of achieving a doctoral degree in a defined period of time, but also to improve the experience of being a PhD candidate at our university.

    Doctoral studies in the Life Sciences and Medicine can have various set-ups, from full-time funded four year tracks to part-time activities in our University Hospital combined with clinical specializations for more than 4 years.

    For this Doctoral School, the key words connecting this variety of pathways towards the doctoral degree are “good guidance and support”.

     

    Yours Sincerely,

    Prof. dr. Leo van Grunsven, Director
