Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Organismal Biology

Update 2022

Following a change in the program's source of funding, please note that from 01.01.2022 onwards:

- No travel nor mobility grants can be awarded by the doctoral program, please see the webpage Useful links - travel grants for other information.

- No activities in the category Communication (= soft skills activities) can be organized by the program.

- The number of ECTS required within our doctoral program is reduced from 8 to 6 (or from 6 to 4 for those who are registered at another university or in co-tutelle). This will be effective for every PhD student who will have their public defense after the 1st of January 2022.

- Other ECTS rules remain the same. You still need to acquire 12 ECTS by the end of your PhD, and you still need to get a minimum of 2 ECTS in each of our category: Communication, Research Tools and Scientific activities.

- See the new point in the FAQ for recommendations to get ECTS in the Communication category.
