PhD projects

Center for Magnetic Resonance staff includes PhD students from all around the world.

A substantial part of our research is carried out by our PhD students.

Each student is responsible for their individual project and is expected to work independently. Our students often have several Supervisors, to allow for frequent and in-depth interaction.

Primary focus is that each student has the opportunity to pursue research excellence in their field, but we also promote discussion and collaboration across team members and disciplines to maintain a 360° perspective on our work.

All students are expected to publish quality research in recognized journals. Participation and presentation of own work at international conferences is encouraged. Many students have an external stay at a relevant international research institution during their project period.

The Center is ambitious and committed, but the culture is informal and social. We have a Journal Club, Cake Club, we arrange Friday bars, we often lunch together and we celebrate each other's good results.
