Ph.d. Cup 2021

Ph.d. Cup 2021

Ph.d. Cup er en årlig formidlingskonkurrence for unge forskere. Alle, der har afleveret og fået godkendt deres ph.d. i 2020, kan søge om at blive en del af Ph.d. Cup 2021. Et dommerpanel bestående af tidl. vindere af Forskningskommunikationsprisen udvælger de fem finalister, der får træning i at stå på en scenen foran et kamera og formidle live, inden showet optages i DR til april.

Deadline for tilmelding til Ph.d. Cup er den 1. februar 2021. 

Hvert år uddannes hundredevis af unge forskere fra danske universiteter – og hvert år siden 2013 har Dagbladet Information og DR inviteret de fem bedste til at præsentere deres forskning for et nationalt tv-publikum. Det sker ved den stort anlagte Ph.d. Cup, der er bliver sendt på DR2. Ph.d. Cup en unik chance for at nå et bredere publikum, også med de forskningsområder, der normalt ikke får stor bevågenhed i medierne. 

Vinderen modtager 50.000 kr.

Udover selve formidlingskonkurrencen udgiver Information magasintillægget Videnskapløb, hvor de fem finalister og deres forskning profileres. Information organiserer også medieskoler for forskere, der ønsker at blive bedre til at formidle til en bredere offentlighed. Alt sammen for at styrke forskningens plads i den offentlige debat. 

Ph.d. Cup er udviklet i samarbejde mellem Dagbladet Information, DR og Lundbeckfonden, der støtter projektet. For mere information kontakt: Maja Find, arrangementchef på Information, mhf@information.dk

AU LAUNCHES MAJOR QUALITY ANALYSIS OF ITS PHD PROGRAMMES

As a PhD student, you can now help assess the quality of your PhD programme by completing the questionnaire you have received in your e-Boks. The survey is conducted every four years, and the responses are included in the work AU does to ensure the quality of its PhD programmes.

For further information please see this page.

Can I get an extension of my PhD project as a direct consequence of COVID-19?

UPDATE 20.10.2020: You can still apply for extension 

 
Application form
:  English version - Danish version 

PhD programme administrator:


 

AU has decided on a joint procedure for handling the challenges students are facing in relation to completing their PhD projects as a direct consequence of COVID-19, including the physical shutdown of AU.

This joint procedure is based on the political agreements on the phased reopening of the country, in addition to the ‘Circular on the agreement on the possibility of extending temporary employment contracts, as a consequence of delays occurring in connection with COVID-19’.

https://www.retsinformation.dk/eli/retsinfo/2020/9273

The objective of the procedure is to ensure a common point of departure for all PhD students at AU, while at the same time granting the individual graduate school the flexibility to handle the challenges in individual students’ PhD projects in the most appropriate way.

The joint procedure applies to PhD students whose progress has been directly affected by COVID-19, including the physical shutdown of AU that began on 13 March 2020:

  • A delay in progress towards the PhD degree must be a direct consequence of COVID-19, including the physical shutdown of AU. 
  • All PhD projects that are or may be delayed must be considered individually and through individual dialogue with the principal supervisor and with a statement from the PhD programme directors and head of departments/employer. 
  • The nature of the delay in the PhD project must be described, and in the evaluation of the extension, every effort must be made to adjust the individual PhD project so as to allow the student to complete their project as planned. 
  • If the PhD project cannot be completed without an extension of the deadline, the amount of additional time to be granted must be calculated on an individual basis. 

https://medarbejdere.au.dk/en/corona/for-phd-students/

An application for extension will not be relevant if you have worked from home taking online courses, written articles or thesis chapters, and been able to continue with parts of your research. If you are in the early stages of your PhD studies, re-planning may allow you to catch up later.

If you are in the final phase of your studies and have been significantly delayed due to the lockdown, discuss the possibilities for completing in due time with your supervisors.

If an extension is deemed necessary, please fill out this application form (English version - Danish version). Your supervisor, PhD programme director and the head of department must comment before forwarding the application to the relevant Graduate School PhD programme administrator (see names above).

All applications will be individually assessed, and we aim to give you a reply as soon as possible after the deadline.

Virtual PhD defences - Message sent to Arts PhD students and supervisors, 25 November 2020

Message sent to all PhD students, supervisors and PhD programme directors, 25 November 2020:

 

 

Dear all,

On October 28, I wrote all of you a message regarding Covid-19 extensions and virtual PhD defences for the fall of 2020. You can view this message here: https://phd.arts.au.dk/fileadmin/phd.arts.au.dk/AR/Email_to_phd-students_28-10-2020.pdf 

I would like to inform you that the management team at Faculty of Arts has prolonged the decision, and all PhD defences will carry on as 100% online defences on Zoom until the end of June 2021.

As mentioned in my earlier message, there are pros and cons to this situation, but we believe this decision will make it easier for all involved to plan the defences.

If the COVID-19 situation unexpectedly improves for the better, the decision will be re-assessed.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: https://phd.arts.au.dk/about‐us/contact/ 

 

Best wishes,

Anne Marie Pahuus
Head of Graduate School/Vice Dean for Research and Talent
