Becoming an ACLC PhD candidate

ACLC welcomes PhD researchers from all over the world. They are admitted to ACLC in one of the two following ways:

  • PhD candidates employed by the Faculty, who receive direct funding from the Faculty of Humanities or funding from EU or NWO grants for their PhD project.

    These PhD positions are advertised on the UvA vacancies list.

  • Externally or self-funded PhD candidates, who bring their own funding either by having a job on the side, or a stipend, loan or grant from another source. These PhD candidates are entitled to a small research budget, library access, e-mail facilities, supervision, and they have access to the programmes offered by the research school to which they belong. We do not charge tuition, but the PhD candidate must ensure the support of two supervisors, including one full professor.

    If you want to join the ACLC as an externally or self-funded PhD candidate, please follow the guidelines posted on the AIHR website.
