Copenhagen seeks talent


TALENT is a new doctoral programme based at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, co-funded by the European Union. 74 PhD scholarships in the natural and life sciences are to be awarded and completed within the next five years.

Currently, the TALENT programme is offering 28 PhD scholarships in 16 areas, commencing 1 January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Deadline for applications is 1 October 2018. Se the job posting.

“Mathematical Sciences, Statistics & Economics” is one of the 16 areas in the programme. Department of Mathematical Sciences and its centres, sections and research groups are examples of places where it would be possible to conduct research within the programme area.

The programme is bottom-up, meaning the applicants are free to define their own projects according to interests, as long as they are aligned with departmental interests and there is qualified supervision on offer at one of the departments.

The TALENT programme offers applicants the chance to become part of a cohort of exceptionally talented research students with the opportunity to fast-track the career in science and beyond. To achieve this, they offer a wide range of options, opportunities and benefits. These include:

  • Access to international and intersectoral collaborations and networking with a range of industrial organisations involved as partners.
  • Access to excellent research environments and infrastructures with world-leading research groups participating in the programme within our 16 programme areas.
  • Access to an extensive training and career mentoring programme with scientific training supplemented by bespoke courses in a range of academic and transferable skills.
  • Employment under world-leading working environments as all scholarships are fully funded in line with Danish employment conditions.
