Employment as a PhD fellow at Aarhus School of Architecture
A PhD fellowship is an opportunity to obtain funding for the PhD studies through employment. A PhD fellowship covers your salary, the costs of supervision, courses, workspace, equipment, assessment and printing costs of the thesis.
To obtain a PhD fellowship at the school you will have to apply for an advertised vacancy. Alle vacancies are advertised under Open positions and in relevent media.
All PhD fellowships at the school are related to architecture and design, and each advertisement states the professional requirements and competences that are required. All applications will undergo a professional evaluation by an assessment committee.
You can also apply for a PhD fellowship directly from a private or national research fund and if you obtain a fellowship, you will be employed by and enrolled at the school. To do so you must first enquire if the school will take on the project and if so send an elaborated project description prior to the application.
The description will be evaluated by the Head of Research and the Head of the PhD School and if they find your project relevant to the school and of high quality, we can help you formulate the application and to set up a budget. Afterwards you can send your application to the fund.
An ordinary PhD fellowship is equivalent to three years of full-time employment and you are paid according to the state agreement for academics. The employment includes a requirement for teaching or other forms of dissemination equivalent to 840 working hours.
