NERF welcomes graduate students from several graduate programs of KU Leuven.
Affiliated Programs:

KU Leuven Arenberg Doctoral School

In addition, graduate students from other universities are welcome to apply for a visiting position in the NERF labs.

Students at NERF are automatically enrolled in the NERF-VIB Center for the Biology of Disease, KU Leuven PhD program and in the imec PhD program. The NERF-VIB Center for Brain & Disease Research, KU Leuven PhD program not only provides the students with a large network from their first year on but also complements the scientific training with an annual PhD class organized by the VIB Center for Brain & Disease Research, KU Leuven and NERF faculty. Besides that, the imec PhD program provides NERF students with a network within imec and with opportunities to present and discuss their results with imec engineers.

Prospective graduate students should contact directly with CV, transcripts, and a brief statement of research interests.
