The Programme will contribute to the researcher’s career development, broadening and deepening individual competencies through exposure to an international and multidisciplinary environment. The Programme is based on incoming mobility and will enable experienced researchers from all over the world to carry out curiosity-driven, bottom-up research projects within all branches of engineering science at DTU.

To enable the unique identification of each application, applicants must assign their application with an acronym.

DTU fully acknowledges the importance of equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, religion or ethnicity.

To further promote equal opportunities, DTU will implement gender blinded reviews. Applicants should refrain from using their names and gender specific pronouns in the research plan (he/she, his/hers etc.). Names and nationality listed in the templates for the research plan and CV will be hidden by the secretariat prior to the external peer review.
