Interested in doing a PhD at Ghent University? Great!
Just remember that all applications need the explicit commitment of a Ghent University professor who will act as your PhD supervisor.
There are essentially two possibilities to start a PhD at Ghent University. You can either apply for an open PhD position (i.e. a research group is actively looking for a PhD candidate) or you can approach a specific Ghent University professor (i.e. you yourself have an interesting research proposal and/or research funding).
