PRINCIPLES FOR ENROLLING PHD STUDENTS IN THE FACULTY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
The University accepts two types of PhD students:
- A limited number of state supported positions are available on a competitive basis each year. The successful candidates will be granted with a modest stipend and social security for four years, provided that the studies progress without major drawbacks.
- Positions opened by the research grpoup's own resources. No formal limits.
The enrollment into a state supported program has two steps. First, potential supervisors write a concise PhD research plan. These will be evaluated and ranked by a commission appointed by the dean. The ranked PhD projects will be made public on the Faculty's web page. Second, qualifying PhD student candidates are welcomed to apply for a position at a successfully ranked PhD project. The decisions will be made by a committee appointed by the dean. Thereafter a contract will be signed and the enrollment will be in force.
