PhD Candidates employed by the Faculty of Humanities
PhD candidates employed by the Faculty of Humanities receive funding from the Faculty or from the inter-faculty research institute ILLC. Sometimes the funding comes from EU or NWO grants, sometimes it comes directly from the Faculty.
Each vacancy also lists a contact person who can provide you with further information on that specific vacancy. Please note that vacancies mean a paid position at our faculty.
NWO, the Dutch Research Council, provides talented researchers with a paid PhD position via its PhD's in the Humanities programme. If you are interested in becoming a PhD candidate through this programme, you need to find a supervisor (a senior researcher) working at the Faculty of Humanities and then contact and apply via one of the research schools of AIHR to take part in a pre-selection process organised by the Faculty of Humanities (you cannot apply for this programme directly at NWO). The deadline for applications for this pre-selection procedure is usually around December.
NWO also provides talented researchers with a paid PhD position via the Mosaic 2.0 programme. This programme is aimed at the underrepresented group of graduates with a migration background from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America and Turkey in the Netherlands. If you are interested in becoming a PhD candidate through this programme, you need to find a supervisor (a senior researcher) working at the Faculty of Humanities to apply on your behalf.
