When applying to EBS to become a PhD student,
you also have the opportunity to become a research fellow. Research fellows are selected by the EBS
Research and Development Council, are employed by EBS and work as part of a research group on a
specific priority topic (see below for 2023 research calls).
These positions are financed either by EBS or external funding (or a combination
of both). The research fellow is therefore both employed by EBS and enrolled into the PhD programme.
As an employee, a research fellow is provided with a workplace and a competitive salary while also
being provided with teaching and supervision as a PhD student.
This scholarship and position include an obligation to contribute to teaching and
other core activities of the school. The duration of the employment is four years (reflecting the
nominal PhD study period) with flexibility depending on individual circumstances. Research fellow
positions are limited and offered to exceptional PhD candidates with a similar vision to fit the EBS
