About

The PhD Catalogue incorporates three types of entries:
  • the ongoing and concluded PhDs
  • the Prospective PhDs Catalogue and
  • the PhD Opportunities Catalogue.

The PhD Catalogue is a decentralised database which is part of a series of catalogues on EU migration and asylum law and policy hosted by the Odysseus Network. The other decentralised catalogues are the Publications and Events Catalogues. This decentralised catalogue gathers information on PhD research and opportunities in the area of EU migration and asylum law and policy with a view to providing a reliable tool for current and prospective PhD researchers to discover research topics, other researchers, supervisors and opportunities in their area. Universities and promoters may also use this catalogue to look for suitable candidates for upcoming PhD research projects.

Ongoing & concluded PhD Catalogue
gathers ongoing and defended PhD research dissertations on EU migration and asylum law and policy. PhD researchers across Europe and beyond may use it as a platform to exchange ideas or collaborate. By browsing through this catalogue, prospective PhD researchers may be able to better define their proposals and to take inspiration from their predecessors .

The
Prospective PhD Catalogue
is aimed at researchers who are willing to pursue a PhD in the area of EU migration and asylum law and policy by giving the possibility to express their interest.

The
PhD Opportunities Catalogue
gathers PhD opportunities in the area of EU migration and asylum law and policy. Even though PhD opportunities have become very competitive, some research projects do not take off for the lack of a suitable profile. Universities and promoters may use this catalogue to find the correct match by posting their upcoming opportunities.

Other persons may comment about the content of these catalogues, providing feedback on the content, or informing the students about current opportunities to develop their work into an actual PhD research.

You can use the search function to find the information in this catalogue according to your parameters. This catalogue is filled by public submission and it is administrated by the Odysseus Coordination Team. Therefore, your contribution is essential to make this catalogue a vivid and updated tool.

Who can add to the PhD Opportunities Catalogue?

Any university or promoter looking for a PhD researcher can submit a PhD opportunity, to be added to this catalogue by following the page “Submit your Information”.

Who is responsible for the content of this catalogue?

The person who submits the information for inclusion in this catalogue is ultimately responsible for its content.

I want to edit the information on my PhD research or have it removed from this catalogue, what should I do?

PhD research projects often change course over time. If you wish to update information on your PhD research, an edit option is available on the page of your entry. The Odysseus Team will need to approve your edit before it appears online. Likewise, the edit option allows you to remove your research from the catalogue. The Odysseus Team will need to finalise the removal to ensure that removal was done deliberately and by the right person. Once the removal is successfully concluded, an email will be sent to the interested person confirming the removal of the research,

If you encounter any difficulties in this process, please contact us at odysseusomnia@ulb.ac.be, providing the Odysseus Coordination Team with the name and link to the entry you would like to have edited or removed. We apologise for any inconvenience and will proceed with the editing or removal of the information as quickly as possible.
