 Copromotor (not obliged - only 1 allowed)

Who?

Depending on the category to which the promoter belongs, the following distinction is being made:

  1. If the promoter belongs to category (1) of the promotership, a co-promoter is optional. At the moment of the deadline of this call, the co-promoter must:
    • belong to one of the categories of the promoters or
    • have an appointment at Ghent University (including "FWO postdoctorale onderzoekers", "VLAIO- and IWT onderzoeksmandaten"), the University Hospital, VIB Ghent, IMEC Ghent, iMinds Ghent and/or Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School or at one of the University Colleges ("hogescholen") from the Ghent University Association and hold a PhD degree.
  2. If the promoter belongs to the integration framework, it is compulsory to add one co-promoter who belongs to category (1) of the promotership. Because researchers in the integration framework cannot be the sole promoter of a PhD, the application has to be supported by a co-promoter who is:
    • a member of the tenured academic staff (Zelfstandig Academisch Personeel)
    • a visiting professor with at least a research assignment

Specifications

  • Co-promoters have no access to the budget for this PhD research.
