Frequently Asked Questions

Important introductory remark

The University of Copenhagen/the Faculty of Science (UCPH/SCIENCE) will base the decision as to whether candidates and proposals are admissible and eligible in the context of the TALENT Doctoral Programme on the documents and information submitted by the applicants through the job portal. Please note that this is the only valid way to submit an application to the TALENT Doctoral Programme. Applications sent via email will be discarded. UCPH/SCIENCE will evaluate the applications after the application deadline: 1 October 2019.

Please observe that UCPH/SCIENCE made templates, which are mandatory to complete and submit as part of the application, to ensure that UCPH/SCIENCE receives all the information needed to evaluate the applications properly.

In order for a proposal to be admissible and eligible, the applicant must live up to the requirements re. mobility, research experience and level of educational degree. Furthermore, all mandatory templates must be used and all required enclosures must be submitted. All other conditions re. admissibility and eligibility must also be met. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure these aspects.

Requirements are indeed requirements, meaning that all applicants must comply with them. Waivers will not be granted.

The majority of questions received by the TALENT secretariat can be answered by reading this FAQ. Moreover, applicants are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the results of the first / and second call for proposals and the reasons for rejection, especially at step one of the evaluation: the eligibility and admissibility check.
