Doctoral positions in biomedical research, in Denmark - DISCOVER (MSCA COFUND)
Deadline: 1 Nov. 2021
Are you scientifically curious and determined to pursue a PhD degree? Are you also interested in understanding why diseases arise and how to develop new treatments? If you are, you might be an excellent candidate for a fully-funded PhD position in discovering treatment from biomedical research at Biotech Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC).
The programme offers young researchers a 36-months fully funded fellowship, attractive employment and salary conditions. It is a unique opportunity to join an international PhD program within biomedicine. DISCOVER offers research training in a modern research environment at the university and collaboration with one of the neighboring hospitals.
The training programme seeks to empower all students to fully exploit their potential, nurture scientific creativity and provide a groundwork for a career track in academia, and empower a new generation of responsible researchers with focus on reducing the environmental footprints of research.
The eligibility criteria are precise criteria regarding mobility and level of education:
- International mobility: Candidates can have any nationality but must undertake transnational mobility according to the MSCA rules. Thus, candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Denmark for more than 12 months in the three years prior to the call deadline. Further, applicants working at UCPH for more than 3 months before the deadline will be considered ineligible.
- Education: Candidates must hold a master’s degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field at the time of application, obtained no longer than three years before application deadline. Candidates can switch to another field of research than their masters but must have sufficient understanding/skills to address the potential research project. In acknowledgement of different career paths, candidates holding a MD degree can apply until five years from obtaining their degree. To ensure equal opportunities, exceptions to the 3/5-year rule are made for applicants with documented career breaks (parental leave, illness, mandatory military/civil service). Candidates must not already hold a PhD degree.
- Application requirements: In order to be eligible, a complete set of application material submitted in due time is required.
