Advance your international academic career

Introduction

The Danish SDC office provides funding for PhD scholarships within SDC’s research areas. Over the years, more than 250 PhD's have received financial support.


Danish SDC PhD students are employed at one of the eight Danish universities and have both a main supervisor from a Danish university and a Chinese co-supervisor from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) or another approved Chinese partner institution.


Depending on the funding one receives from SDC, it is required to spend a minimum of either 6, 9 or 12 months in a Chinese research environment during the employment. One is also expected to contribute to the educational activities on at least one of the SDC MSc programmes and to the collaboration between UCAS and the Danish universities in general.


Danish SDC PhD scholarships are announced annually in open positions posted on the websites of the PhD schools at the Danish universities. Please visit the websites regularly to learn more about vacant PhD scholarships.


Chinese citizens (includes Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) cannot apply for PhD scholarships funded by the Danish SDC office but must apply through University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in accordance with Chinese national regulations.
