PhD students are an important part of academia, as they form a large part of the work force. Just like their post-doctoral colleagues, they collect and analyse data, and disseminate their findings in scientific journals and books. However, PhD students' contracts are radically different: Most receive a stipend instead of a salary, and have very little rights to sick leave.

There are upsides to the current situation: It is cheaper than employing PhD candidates with a staff contract, and thus allows for more people to be trained. One major downside is highlighted in a recent issue of Nature, (http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/539495e), by three students who were diagnosed with cancer during their doctoral training. In the United Kingdom, a PhD student's funding tends to be suspended when they fall ill, resulting in a double whammy of serious illness and loss of income.

We, the undersigned, believe that PhD students should be better protected against loss of income and employment due to illness. Even within the UK grant system for doctoral training, there should be room to include sick leave arrangements in student contracts. We feel that 6 months of paid leave in case of serious illness should be offered with every funded PhD position.
