Do you have an excellent science degree from outside Denmark, but want to move into a research career in science communication studies, medical humanities, or museology?
Would you be keen to deepen your understanding of bioscience by studying first year courses and working alongside 15 other students who will do their PhD projects in metabolic, stem cell, protein, or biosustainability research?
In 2015, Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) launched the 4 year Copenhagen Bioscience PhD programme, based in the four NNF research centers. The Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR) includes the Section for Science Communication, based at Medical Museion and responsible for exhibitions such as Obesity: What’s the Problem, Genomic Enlightenment, and Hello Bacteria!, alongside an array of events and social media work. The Section also conducts research in science communication, medical humanities, and museology that both supports and reflects on the practical communication activities. Candidates can apply with a preference to do their PhD project in CBMR’s Section for Science Communication, then the projects and supervision are finalised during the first year.
The deadline for this year’s application round is on December 15th (more details here), so if you have any questions, or would like to discuss whether your background matches the programme requirements, get in touch with Louise Whiteley on .
