In addition to our fundamental research, we want to share our knowledge through courses, seminars, workshops and other public talks. In addition, we offer PhD positions and internships for young researchers to develop their skills at our institute.
PhD positions and internships
As a young researcher at DIFFER, you are given the opportunity to start your career by doing PhD research that is relevant for society. Our senior researchers supervise you through on-the-job training, and you receive courses on presentation techniques, scientific writing and the valorisation of research. We also offer long and short internships for MBO, BSc and MSc students. Learn about working at DIFFER and check out our vacancies page.
