The Graduate School of Health is now accepting applications for enrolment and fully financed PhD fellowships.
Furthermore a number of research training supplements are allocated. Please note that you no longer have to apply for a research training supplement – applicants are automatically considered for a research training supplement when applying for enrolment.
Both the fully financed PhD fellowships and the research training supplements are allocated in relation to the drawn up strategic criteria:
For applicants for a fully financed fellowship, a high score on minimum one of the strategic criteria will be a precondition to come into consideration.
For allocation of a research training supplement, the same strategic target areas will be emphasized in the prioritizing of applicants, but a high score on minimum one of the strategic criteria is not a precondition to come into consideration.
Both fully financed PhD fellowships granted and research training supplements will be allocated to the department at Aarhus University, where the PhD student will be employed. A filled out and signed financial statement is not mandatory as part of the application, but has to be signed and submitted before enrolment.
To apply for a 3-year PhD study programme you must have completed a relevant Master’s degree. The Master’s study has to be equivalent to a Danish Master’s degree of 120 ECTS – if you have any doubt you can submit your diplomas for an assessment via firstname.lastname@example.org.
General criteria for PhD applications
All applications will be evaluated based on the submitted material using the following criteria. The time for research experience after the qualifying exam is taken into consideration.
The project (40 % of the total evaluation)
The applicant (40 % of the total evaluation)
The research environment and PhD plan elements (20 % of the total evaluation)
The application and all mandatory attachments, incl. the project description, must be in English. If the project description is not in English, the application will be rejected by the administration.
Please note that we will evaluate the application as it is when the deadline has passed. It is not possible to submit any material for the application after the deadline.
Furthermore, please be aware that we only evaluate one application per applicant per call. Thus, if you have submitted more than one application, we reserve the right only to evaluate the last application received.
Please note that PhD students who are already enrolled are not eligible for PhD fellowships and/or research training supplements. Applications from enrolled PhD students will not be taken into consideration.
