Turning out multidisciplinary e-health PhDs
Prospective PhDs in e-health will need to be proficient in interdisciplinary research and acquire skills transferable to either academic or non-academic jobs. The BoostUrCAreer project is based at the Universite Cote d’Azur, where degree candidates will work in two of the university’s laboratories, partnering with both a foreign academic and a non-academic. The programme will include two laboratory supervisors, an academic tutor and a non-academic mentor. They will advise on the doctoral thesis and help with the graduate’s transition to the workforce. A six-month term at a laboratory abroad will further enhance training and add to the candidates’ future career prospects.
