Description of SCIENCE and the 12 departments and the PhD School
Research at SCIENCE rests on two pillars: on the one hand strong basic research, and on the other application-oriented research, which contributes to growth and employment and solves societal problems, for example within climate change, sustainable energy supplies, biological production, environmental challenges, food and water safety, lifestyle diseases and IT security.
SCIENCE’s researchers have received 13 grants from the European Research Council (ERC). In the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme, SCIENCE’s researchers attracted approximately half of all the Marie Curie postdoc fellowships in Denmark. SCIENCE is also host to 15 Centers of Excellence financed by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF) with section heads participating in a further three. These accomplishments show that SCIENCE’s research environments have the academic weight to attract researchers at a high international level. This again testifies to the fact that the TALENT programme constitutes an extraordinary opportunity for doing a PhD.
The PhD School at SCIENCE, in which the TALENT PhD students will be enrolled, has over 1,100 students and app. 55% of them come from outside of Denmark, originating from 75 different countries. This means that even the PhD environment is highly international and competitive.

Why apply?
TALENT is an international and interdisciplinary PhD programme, which offers young researchers the chance to become part of a cohort of exceptionally talented PhD students with the opportunity to cultivate their research talent. To this end, we offer:
  • Access to international and intersectoral collaborations and networking with a range of industrial organisations: the Confederation of Danish Industry (, the Confederation of Danish Enterprise (, the Danish Agriculture and Food Council (, Copenhagen Science City (, DIKU Business Club (
  • Access to excellent research environments and infrastructures with world leading research groups.
  • Access to an extensive training and career mentoring programme with scientific training supplemented by tailor made courses in a range of academic and transferrable skills.
  • Employment under world leading working environments as all fellowships are funded fully in line with Danish employment conditions.

The objective of the TALENT programme is to facilitate early independence of the PhD students and fast track their careers in academia or industry. For more information about what the programme offers, go to
About the programme
The TALENT programme offers 74 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.
