The Department of Chemistry at University of Copenhagen is offering a full funded and one partially funded (1/3 KU) PhD scholarships commencing between the 1st of July 2010 and 1st of September 2010.

Job description
The key tasks for PhD students at The Department of Chemistry are:

  • Teaching and dissemination

Qualifications required
The scholarships are open to both Danish and international applicants. Normally, we will expect applicants to have obtained an MSc degree in Chemistry but it is also possible to enrol candidates at the 4+4 scheme with a 3-year BSc degree and 1 MSc year behind them. However this will involve additional years of study, a midway qualification exam, and lower wages for the first two years.

An assessment committee to evaluate the applications will be appointed. Each applicant will be notified of the composition of the committee and will receive the part of the evaluation that concerns her/him. The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the final selection of successful candidates will be made by the Head of the Department, based on the recommendations made by the evaluation committee.

Successful candidates will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science, University of Copenhagen and to start their enrolment not later than 30 September 2010.
Terms of appointment and payment are in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Federation of Professional Associations (AC). The starting salary for candidates with an MSc degree will be a minimum of DKK 300.174 per year (April 2010 level) plus pension contribution and the possibility to negotiate wage.

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
