PhD at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences

Until 31 December, 2006 the faculty was an independent research institution (Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences) without the right to offer university degrees. However, since 1 January, 2007 now as the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences (DJF), University of Aarhus, we are offering full PhD degrees. Bachelor and Master degree programs are being planned.

PhD and Master students

Every year DJF offers a number of Master and PhD students the possibility to carry out their projects at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Aarhus.

PhD degree at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences

An important objective of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences is to contribute to the education of new research scientists. The Faculty of Agricultural Sciences offers PhD students the opportunity to work in a very active research environment, and the faculty will at the same time strengthen its basis for recruitment of young and promising scientists.

At present the faculty has about 90 PhD students most of whom are still enrolled at other universities because our faculty is so new. However, a growing number of PhD students are enrolled at the faculty where they will receive a full PhD degree.

The PhD project will be connected to one or more ongoing research projects. In this way the PhD student will be part of an interdisciplinary team and will have the benefit of receiving supervision from several highly trained researchers. peu ou beaucoup � l'entreprise pharmaceutique? peut �tre compar� � l'Am�rique, o� les chiffres sont de 3 � 4. We consider that access to facilities like a good office desk and a computer with full internet access including access to leading data bases is an obvious part of being PhD student in the faculty.

Vacant positions as PhD student or graduate research fellows are advertised on the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences� web-site, the daily press, periodicals and at the universities.

Master projects at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences

The Faculty of Agricultural Sciences considers participation in the education of new scientist to be an important objective. Students writing their dissertation are offered the opportunity to be a part of an active and dynamic research environment and the faculty at the same time strengthens its recruitment basis for young and promising scientists.

Every year about 50 students choose to do their dissertation project at the faculty. Most of them are enrolled at the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen, but we also receive students from other Danish and foreign universities. From September 2008, the faculty will offer its own Master courses and enroll its own students. Until then, if you choose to write your dissertation at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, your principal tutor will be from the university in which you have enrolled and the external tutor (senior scientist or professor) will be from the relevant department at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences.

In general student projects are connected to one or more ongoing research project. In this way the student will be a part of an interdisciplinary team which makes it possible to exploit the research resources used on the specific project. We are pleased to be able to offer project students at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences facilities like office space and a computer with full internet access.
