Doctoral Programme

Doing a PhD at LISER

LISER offers the possibility to pursue a PhD at the Institute in collaboration with another higher education institution, in the context of one of the funding schemes of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) or outside these funding schemes. In some cases, PhD candidates are fully funded by LISER.

The possibility to pursue a PhD is also offered, on a part-time basis, to LISER staff.

Each research Department hosts a number of doctoral candidates benefiting from different funding schemes including the FNR PRIDE programme.

LISER has implemented a LISER PhD training scheme which describes the principles, rules and procedures to implement for all its PhD candidates. This is in accordance with the Quality Framework for Doctoral Training developed by the FNR.
