PhD Courses

The LNMB offers a biennial PhD program. The academic year is composed of three trimesters, each having a duration of 9 or 10 weeks. The last week of these is reserved as a back up in case one of the lectures must be cancelled.

The PhD students of the LNMB have elected a PhD representative. The representative attends the board meetings of the LNMB and can be contacted if you have problems regarding the PhD courses or suggestions regarding other matters concerning the PhD students of the LNMB. The current PhD representative is Dylan Huizing (CWI),
