NERF welcomes graduate students from several graduate programs of KU Leuven.
• KU Leuven Arenberg Doctoral School
• KU Leuven Doctoral School of Biomedical Sciences
• KU Leuven International Doctoral School for the Humanities and Social Sciences
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 the Biology of Disease, 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 the Biology of Disease, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org directly with CV, transcripts, and a brief statement of research interests.
