We welcome open PhD proposals with topics that are linked to the research, carried out at the Transportation Research Institute of Hasselt University (IMOB).
However, before you can apply for an open PhD, note that no funding can be provided by the Transportation Research Institute/Hasselt University. Extra costs for supervision and enrolment in the PhD programme also apply.
Therefore you will have to dispose of sufficient financial means to support yourself for 4 years, the minimum time which is necessary to obtain a PhD at our university. Below you can find:
