- The department conducts both basic research in a range of biological disciplines and research-based public sector consultancy in the areas of environmental management of marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Currently the research activities at the department are organized in 18 sections in which Department of Bioscience offers PhD studies.
- The research at Bioscience spans over all biological levels from genes, physiological processes, individuals, populations and species to entire ecosystems. We work with evolutionary processes, which are the foundation of all life and explore the mechanisms, which explain the correlation between living organisms and the environment. The research activities seek the interface between disciplines such as Zoophysiology, Bioinformatics and Geomicrobiology. Research at the Department of Bioscience includes basic research, applied research and strategic research.
The sections are defined in terms of academic and geographical considerations. The sections consist of a Head of section, a number of permanent staff members and a number of PhD students, postdocs and graduate students. The following sections have been established at our 4 geographical sites:

- Aarhus University welcomes applicants from all over the world. However, our PhD programmes are internationally very competitive, and only applicants with the highest level of documented qualifications (educational background, academic skills and grades) are admitted.
- You can enter a three year PhD programme after five years of full-time university study (Master’s degree). Several graduate schools also offer you a four year PhD programme after you have completed four years of full time university study. At the Faculty of Science you have the unique opportunity of starting your PhD studies after obtaining your Bachelor’s degree. You can read more about these options and the research fields and study structures of the individual programmes on the graduate school websites.
- The English language requirement at GSST is comparable to an “English B level” in the Danish upper secondary school (“gymnasium”).
