MERLN is a growing institute and new positions are frequently available. Prospective PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to apply for open vacancies. For international candidates, it is noteworthy that it is the norm in the Netherlands to directly apply for a PhD position as it becomes advertised. This is in contrast with some countries (e.g., US, Canada, UK) where you apply to a University or Graduate School with a set annual deadline. If you are interested in performing your doctoral research at MERLN, you should search for an open vacancy and apply before the deadline closes.
Keep an eye on this page for the latest vacancies. You should apply via the Academic Transfer website.
Our Principal Investigators (PIs) also welcome open applications from outstanding candidates at any time. Please submit your CV and cover letter to the PI of interest by email.
