For the majority of doctoral positions at Lund University, you apply online through our online job portal and complete the requirements as advertised for the specific vacancy and in line with the process described by the department. Application documents are sent directly to the department including officially certified copies of documents/certificates/transcripts and other supporting documents, as required for the specific position/particular department. Authorised translations are often needed. You may need to provide additional details of your academic background, . syllabi, course descriptions and literature lists.
You should enter your doctoral programme in October at the start of the academic year if at all possible. This is when taught modules commence within the School, as does the University’s research training programme and the widest array of training courses. After the training-needs assessment with your supervisor you may be asked to attend one or more first semester modules commencing in October and, if the training is deemed essential to your programme, this may be a requirement for any offer of a place.
October is also the start of the academic year for all students, with a formal induction programme as well as a vibrant calendar of events, and you’ll definitely benefit socially if you start your studies with other new students.
