Qualification Details

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree. You will need a strong personal drive and collaborative skills in addition to an excellent and relevant scientific background for the PhD project.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We invite you to join our internationally leading research environments where we encourage collaboration and knowledge-sharing to foster new ideas and solutions. We collaborate with leading research groups around the world at universities, research facilities, and private companies.At DTU Physics, we perform research and teaching in physics areas that offer fundamental challenges and innovation potentials. We embrace projects that range from curiosity driven to projects that are closely related to solving grand challenges in society. You can read more about our research on our homepage, see links below.In addition to the section specific topics, we wish in this call to attract an excellent candidate to push the research boundaries using advances in digitalization. This is in line with the DTU Strategy, and at DTU Physics this could for example be in quantum information technology, machine learning for materials development or digitalization of natural heritage using 3D x-ray imaging. For the digitalization effort, collaboration with relevant colleagues at DTU Compute is expected as well as participation in a DTU-level task force on digitalization.  The PhD position includes salary and travel grants covering the three years it takes to obtain a PhD degree at a Danish university, and may commence in the spring period of 2021.
