PhD programme in Ecoscience

The Department of Ecoscience conducts both basic research in a range of biological disciplines and research-based public sector consultancy in the areas of environmental management of marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Currently the research activities at the department are organized in 11 sections in which Department of  Ecoscience offers PhD studies.

The sections are defined in terms of academic and geographical considerations. The sections consist of a Head of section, a number of permanent staff members and a number of PhD students, postdocs and graduate students. The following sections have been established at our 3 geographical sites:

If you have a talent for research, it is possible to continue your studies and achieve a PhD degree. The Department of Ecoscience offers an active and inspiring environment for young researchers and has approx. 20 PhD students; nearly half of them are from abroad.

Most of the Department's scientists have large international networks and therefore good opportunities for working together with foreign scientists and establish contacts which can form the basis for postdoc studies abroad.
