Call for applications for funding of research stay at Health

Calls for AUFF grants are with the purpose of improving the internationalization of the PhD education at Health. The call is funded by Aarhus University Research Foundation, and is subject to sufficient funds.

There are two different options under this call. Both are applied for by the supervisor at Health:

Grant for recruitment of talented international candidates to the PhD programme at Health
It is possible to apply for a grant for 1-3 months for a research stay at Health.

The grant awarded is a scholarship to international potential PhD students with a qualifying degree from a non-Danish university. The purpose of the research stay is to assess the candidate’s suitability for a PhD study at Health, and the stay can thus be used for preparing an application for PhD enrolment and a general introduction to the local research environment.

The research stay must be concluded by the end of 2018.

Travel grant for a research stay at Health for international PhD students
It is possible to apply for a grant for 3-6 months as funding for a research stay at Health.

The grant awarded is a scholarship to international PhD students enrolled at a non-Danish university. The purpose of the research stay is PhD studies and project work relevant to the candidate's PhD programme.

The research stay must be concluded by the end of 2018.

Grants
The grant consists of a scholarship of DKK 15,000 per month (taxed at source) to be used for living expenses (housing, course fees etc.) and travel expenses (transport, visa etc.). The grant cannot be used for project materials and permanent equipment or for travel expenses for family members.

The scholarship is not to be compared with a salaried position and is not extended due to maternity or paternity leave or sickness. It does not include holiday allowance or pension, and the candidate will not be covered by AU insurance.

How to apply
The applicant is the supervisor, who must be employed at Health.

Candidates can use 'Find a Researcher' or the webpages of the departments to contact potential supervisors at Health: http://health.au.dk/en/research/research-at-health/. Unfortunately, the administration is unable to assist in getting a supervisor. 

Please use the application form. Applications must be emailed as one PDF file to graduateschoolhealth@au.dk no later than 17 April 2017.  A decision can be expected mid-May 2017.
