Hi, I am looking for a PhD in Socio-hydrology/sustainable water resource management/hydrological modeling. I have a Master's degree from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. 1. What kind of PhD positions are available? Are there structured positions (cohorts in doctoral schools), or individual PhDs (where you are answerable to the professor concerned)? Do PhDs start all year round, or with the new semester? 2. Is there a portal where I could search for the researchers/universities working in the agricultural/water sector? 3. What are the avenues for scholarships to fund the PhD? Are there any websites to customize such searches?


Hi there, Ad 1.: PhD positions are advertised continuously throughout the year, including within your field. PhD positions in Denmark are always individual. They are paid positions so technically you will become an employee during your PhD and will be answerable to your designated supervisor. PhDs usually begin their studies with the new semester. Ad 2.:You can perform a customised search in the databases of study programmes at You can check out open PhD positions using, see: Ad 3.: Advertised PhD-positions always come with a scholarship (as they are formally considered employment). The sources of funding in Denmark are: a) the universities' own funding for research, b) Grants from ongoing projects under the publicly funded research councils, i.e., Danish Council for Independent Research or Innovation Fund Denmark (the latter in the case of industrial PhD) or c) funding from private donations/Foundations. But remember: Funding is never separated from enrolment to become a PhD student in Denmark. The rule is: No enrolment without available funding. Hence, the trick is to find the right call for applications/advertisement of a PhD position.


Hello i completed my masters in Horticulture science. How can i apply for further studies.


Hello, I suggest that you visit and perform a customised topic-wise search in the database of study offerings. Also try to search for "food science", "food production technology" and related terms that may resonate with Horticulture science. can also provide you with al the information you will need regarding application procedures, including contacts to the international counsellors of the institutions. Best of luck! Kristoffer Brix Bertelsen, Innovation Centre Denmark, New Delhi.


is there any opportunity to be enrolled in research work?I have done many researches in my undergraduate MBBS programe.yet there is no opportunity for me to be entitted for research work in pakistan. is there any scholarship opportunity?


Dear Muhammed, In principle, you can be enrolled in research work but it depends on what you mean exactly by research work. I suggest that you do a search on where you can perform a customised search in your field of study and the various parameters of eligibility. Then, I suggest that you visit the websites of the relevant institutions and get in touch with the international student counsellors. Yes, there is a scholarship opportunity but you will need to ask the institutions which scholarships may be available, as scholarships in Denmark are offered by the institutions. Best of luck, Kristoffer Brix Bertelsen, Counsellor, Innovation Centre Denmark, New Delhi
