Prospective PhD candidates
Do you have a master's degree or a medical, dentist or other health profession degree at master level? Are you interested in working on a health related research topic? Maybe you should consider doing a PhD!
Why apply to our PhD programme?
The PhD programme at the Faculty of Medicine offers high quality research training through research and a PhD degree will qualify you for research and other kinds of work requiring a high level of scientific insight within medical and health related research.
The PhD education must be funded. This means that you either receive a salary as a research fellow or through other employment during the agreement period. As a PhD candidate, you will work with other engaged candidates and researchers, and you will have the opportunity to travel and establish new professional networks. A PhD education is a good start to your career, in or outside academia.
How to apply for admission to the PhD programme
There are two ways to obtain funding for a PhD project. The first option is to apply for a university PhD research fellow position. Our vacancies are announced via JobbNorge.
The second option is to obtain external funding, either as a research fellow or another type of position which allows PhD training with a private or public employer. Please note that the funding must both cover your living costs and the costs related to the research project for the entire doctoral training period.
