Internships, Bachelor and Master thesis
Limited possibilities are available to receive a small financial support during your stay at SCK•CEN. This will only be granted to foreign students, upon specific request, and after careful evaluation by the SCK•CEN Academy and the SCK•CEN mentor. Low-priced housing is available; for more information please consult the section "Housing facilities" at the SCK•CEN website.
PhD students will enrol at a university, and will also be employed by that university. SCK•CEN will draw up an agreement with the university in which, amongst others, the financial issues are described: SCK•CEN will cover for the personnel cost, according to the levels of the university, a lump sum to cover working costs, and the requested overhead.
Post-doc researchers are employed by SCK•CEN for a period of two years, under the same conditions as personnel with permanent contracts.
External financial support
The SCK•CEN Academy is looking for additional financial support from external partners.
Collaborations with industry and governmental organisations such as FWO
are established. In this case the scientific content of the internship or thesis is guided by both parties. External financial support is also possible independent of any scientific guidance.
If you are interested in financially supporting research performed at SCK•CEN, please contact the SCK•CEN Academy for further info.
The SCK•CEN Academy is grateful to all external financial contributors and thankful for their ongoing support. These are our current contributors and their respective websites for more information.
