PhD student at Umicore

One option is working towards your PhD at Umicore in association with the Flemish government and a university. That opportunity arises when we encounter a research request that demands such an approach. In response, we will look for a supervisor and a student willing to do a PhD in the subject in question.

Also our researchers will coach you during your project. And you can use our research center for part of your project, a good opportunity to get a taste of working in an industrial environment. Initiating such projects and setting selection criteria is the responsibility of Umicore.
