PhD positions

Each year in spring, the ICS hires 10-12 promising PhD students (Dutch and foreign), educated in sociology, economics, or other social sciences. The selected PhD students will be located at one of the four ICS locations (Groningen, Utrecht, Nijmegen, or Amsterdam), depending on the project. Training of PhD students takes place within a highly structured three- or four-year program in theory construction and research methods in the social sciences. The training takes place in all four locations: courses are given in Groningen, Utrecht, Nijmegen and Amsterdam.

More information about the PhD program can be found here.

Most ICS PhD students are employees of the local university. For up to date information about employment conditions (including salary) in Dutch universities please consult this website.

More details about the PhD positions in 2018 will be posted here in April 2018. Selected applicants will be invited for interviews on June 4 or 5. Please check this website regularly for updates.
