Use your curious mindset and scientific ideas to make a difference for the digital future

You have finished (or are close to finishing) your master's degree in mathematics, data science, statistics or computer science. Then what? We have the answer. At least if your dream is to turn your ideas into technology for the benefit of people by pushing the boundaries of the digital agenda in science and engineering.

DTU Compute invites applications for a PhD scholarship within our core topics, where digitalization plays a key role in advancing the field. The PhD project will be carried out in collaboration with another DTU department, and the PhD student will be part of a newly established digitalization taskforce. You can look for further inspiration in the research description of our 11 research sections here.

At DTU Compute you will be part of an internationally renowned research environment counting top class scientists, supervisors and numerous PhD students like yourself. In a combined role (full time with full time salary) you will be both a student and a co-working scientist. When finished, you have built valuable network, friendships as well as achieved research results to be proud of – and by that you have created the best possible foundation for your future career in academia or industry.

Step 1 – contact a potential principal supervisor at DTU Compute Your first step is to contact a potential principal supervisor at DTU Compute. Together with the supervisor and a co-supervisor from another DTU department, you will then agree on a particular project and formulate a research proposal that you submit with your application. The proposal should describe the digital potential of the project. As part of the preparation process, you will get to visit DTU. Please note that your application must contain an acceptance letter from the supervisor.

Research output and learning opportunity Your tangible goal is to transform from a student to a researcher while carrying out a scientific project and obtaining new results. We have a well tested road map for that covering your independent research project, a course program, research dissemination and teaching, an external research stay, your thesis and finally the public defence.

We see the PhD as a research opportunity, an education to the highest level, and personal. For this, we prioritize PhD supervision and provide various social and networking opportunities.

Qualifications To become a successful PhD student, you need a scientific mindset with a curious approach to learning backed by an additional ability to think innovatively outside the box. As you will face multiple challenges, you will need persistency and a positive work attitude. Formally, you must have:

  • A two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or equivalent in a relevant field of engineering and science that fits your proposed project
  • High grades
  • Proficiency in written and oral English
  • Please see the DTU PhD Guide for further information regarding requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the programme.

    About DTU Compute DTU Compute is an internationally unique academic environment spanning the science disciplines mathematics, statistics and computer science. At the same time we are an engineering department covering informatics and communication technologies (ICT) in their broadest sense. Finally, we play a major role in addressing the societal challenges of the digital society where ICT is a part of every industry, service, and human endeavour.

    DTU Compute has 11 sections counting a total staff of 400 including 100 faculty members and 130 PhD students. We offer introductory courses to all engineering programmes at DTU and specialised courses to the mathematics, computer science, and other programmes.

    Salary and employment terms The employment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The position is a full-time position. The period of employment is 3 years starting in the spring of 2022.

    The workplace is DTU Lyngby Campus.
