About the programme

  • The TALENT programme offers 25 PhD fellowships (in total) of 36 months each, attractive employment conditions at one of the 12 departments at SCIENCE and enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD School at SCIENCE.
  • TALENT is a unique programme by requesting, as part of the application procedure, the applicants to devise their own interdisciplinary PhD project within one of the above-mentioned 16 programme areas/panels and to indicate the department, which they find most suitable to host their project, and the names of the main supervisor and co-supervisors. In other words, TALENT is a bottom up programme, which thereby focuses on the research interests of the PhD students.
  • If employed, an individual Career Development Plan will be made for the TALENT PhD students, outlining scientific as well as transferable courses, international research visits/secondments, mentoring and other career enhancing activities.
  • The Career Development plan is a central element in ensuring the right training and progress throughout the PhD project.

 Duration: 3 years


  • Applicant must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to TALENT’s call deadline: 1 October 2018. Time spent on obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention, compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
  • Applicant must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and must not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.
  • Applicant must hold a relevant MSc degree at the time of applying.
  • The candidates, who do not hold an MSc degree, are also considered eligible if their credentials and CV equal those achieved on an MSc. This could be in the form of five years of full-time undergraduate and postgraduate education OR four years of full-time undergraduate education combined with relevant courses, fieldwork, scientific publications or conducted research (these aspects must be documented by uploading additional documents as part of the CV).


  • Apply online and the application must include the following:
  • Cover/motivation letter
  • Project description incl. ethics assessment form
  • Prioritized CV incl. publications
  • Declaration of mobility
