Apply for a PhD position here

New application procedures

The application process at Graduate School of Technical Sciences has changed. Fundamentally, we have separated the scholarship grant process from the admission to the Graduate School.

This means that all applicants must apply via one of the PhD projects that will be announced here on this website.
The admission process is continuous with individual deadlines of the announced PhD projects.

For questions, please contact the GSTS admission team at admission.gradschool.tech@au.dk.

You can use the filter function to narrow down your search field or search for something specific.
