Postdoctoral Positions

The  QMATH Centre at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, yearly invites for applications for several attractive postdoc positions, with a duration of one to three years. The teaching load is around two quarter (half-semester) courses a year, primarily related to the applicant's research.

The application deadline this year is November 15, 2021. The starting date usually September 1 or October 1 in the following year. The link for more information on the next call will be available by Mid September, 2021.

PhD Stipends

The standard PhD programme in Copenhagen is a 3-year programme, with entering PhD-students expected to hold the equivalent of a master's degree. 

Students who have not completed the equivalent on a Danish master's degree can occasionally be given the option of enrolling in a concurrent master and PhD-programme with a total duration of up to 5 years (depending on prior course credits). Students seeking this option should also apply through the regular PhD call. 

There are two yearly application deadlines in November and April, with a starting date usually the following fall. Spring admission is also possible. 

Your application and all supporting documents must be submitted no later than  April 1, 2021.
