PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Computer Science
Organismal morphology is studied in biology to decode evolutionary relationships among species and test hypotheses about the evolutionary tree. The Stochastic Morphometry project aims for developing statistical models of morphological change through evolution, thereby making phylogenetic inference tools applicable for studying shape evolution. The aim is to revolutionize how evolutionary analyses of morphological data are performed to fully take advantage of the rich information of changes in complex biological structures. The developed models will be applied to studies of a rich set of biological data. The project is lead by Stefan Sommer (UCPH), Rasmus Nielsen (UCPH, Berkeley), Mads Nielsen (UCPH) and Christy Hipsley (UCPH).

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Digital Media and Political Contention
Rapidly emerging technologies are playing a significant role in shaping the way in which people engage with politics and pursue social justice, as we see in the cases of Black Lives Matter, the #MeToo movement, and the Arab Spring. We know a great deal about the technologies people use in political contention and movements, as illustrated by terms like “Twitter uprising” or “Facebook revolution,” which became interchangeable with “the Arab Spring.” And yet, we know very little about why people choose some but not other technologies, and how people decide on specific political uses of certain technologies as what Tilly calls “repertoire of contention.” The To-Use-or-Not project explores the reasoning behind people’s diverse decisions on use and non-use of technology for political contention in specific contexts. A short description of the project can be found here: https://comm.ku.dk/research/information-technology-and-connections/to-use-or-not-to-use/ (English); https://dff.dk/forskningsprojekter/forskningsleder/dff-forsknings-ledere-2021/jun-liu?set_language=da (Danish).

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellow in Particle Astrophysics at the Niels Bohr International Academy and DARK
Neutrinos are weakly interacting particles playing a fundamental role in astrophysical environments. Because of their feeble interacting nature, neutrinos escape unimpeded from their sources, hence being powerful messengers of extreme astrophysical sites not otherwise accessible. We are interested in unveiling the nature of these puzzling particles and at using them as messengers of the engine behind the most energetic events in our Universe.

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Neolithic archaeology
The overall goal of the project is to explain why figurative representations are missing among Northern Europe’s first farmers. As farming spread from southeast to central Europe, the number of figurines decreased and when agriculture expanded to northern Europe, they had disappeared. The project seeks explanations for the absence of figurines in deep socio-cultural and ritual-religious differences dividing Neolithic Europe in a figurative southeastern part and an imageless northern part. This will include the identification and analyses of shifts in social organization and ritual-religious practices across early agricultural communities in southeast and central Europe.

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in protected area effectiveness and threats to biodiversity at Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate
This PhD will focus on understanding the effectiveness of protected and conserved areas (including other effective area based conservation measures) in reducing threats to biodiversity. Working with a newly developed dataset on the distribution of the primary threats to biodiversity (See Harfoot et al. 2021, Nature Ecology and Evolution: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41559-021-01542-9 the candidate will explore questions related to whether protected and conserved areas are located where they may best curb threats as well as investigating the impact of protection on reducing threats. The project is global in scope and will (in addition to the data from Harfoot et al. 2021) rely on multiple open-access data sources including the World Database on Protected Areas, the Human footprint as well as integrate relevant data on socio-economic and environmental context to assess the effectiveness. However, depending on the candidates interest and experiences there will be scope for regional or national analysis as well as exploring different thematic elements related to the topic of protected area effectiveness and threats to biodiversity.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship(s) within the project “What is keeping unemployed workers from finding employment? The role of information, job characteristics, and behavioral biases” at the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen
Unemployment is detrimental to society and individuals. Helping unemployed workers find good jobs is therefore very important. The aim of the research project is to improve our understanding of how job search works and how we can improve job outcomes for the unemployed.
A main problem for previous research on job search is lack of data. While many data sets contain information about unemployment and job finding, very few data sets contain information about job search behavior. At the center of this research project sits a range of brand new data sources that try to fill this gap. This includes data on actual job applications, click-by-click data on how job seekers search for jobs online and novel survey data to be collected in the project. These data will be combined with the detailed administrative register data from Statistics Denmark.

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowships in the field of Real World Data/Evidence (Big Data) at Department of Pharmacy
The use of real-world data (RWD) for evidence generation to support regulatory and clinical decision-making is not new. In disease epidemiology and in post-market safety evaluation RWD and real-world evidence (RWE) are already quite well established, and often used in the context of use of observational data and pharmacoepidemiological methods. The US Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) define RWD as “routinely collected data relating to a patient’s health status or the delivery of health care from a variety of sources other than traditional clinical trials”, and RWE is the evidence derived from analysis of RWD.

About The University of Copenhagen, Denmark – Official Website
The University of Copenhagen is a public research university in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1479, the University of Copenhagen is the second-oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks as one of the top universities in the Nordic countries and Europe.
Its establishment sanctioned by Pope Sixtus IV, the University of Copenhagen was founded by Christian I of Denmark as a Catholic teaching institution with a predominantly theological focus. In 1537, it was re-established by King Christian III as part of the Lutheran Reformation. Up until the 18th century, the university was primarily concerned with educating clergymen. Through various reforms in the 18th and 19th century, the University of Copenhagen was transformed into a modern, secular university, with science and the humanities replacing theology as the main subjects studied and taught.
The University of Copenhagen consists of six different faculties, with teaching taking place in its four distinct campuses, all situated in Copenhagen. The university operates 36 different departments and 122 separate research centres in Copenhagen, as well as a number of museums and botanical gardens in and outside the Danish capital. The University of Copenhagen also owns and operates multiple research stations around Denmark, with two additional ones located in Greenland. Additionally, The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the public hospitals of the Capital and Zealand Region of Denmark constitute the conglomerate Copenhagen University Hospital.
A number of prominent scientific theories and schools of thought are namesakes of the University of Copenhagen. The famous Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics was conceived at the Niels Bohr Institute, which is part of the university. The Department of Political Science birthed the Copenhagen School of Security Studies, which is also named after the university. Others include the Copenhagen School of Theology and the Copenhagen School of Linguistics.
