Aarhus University invites applications for a number of exciting PhD positions with a special focus on inequality. The positions are part of Aarhus University’s new initiative PIREAU (Platform on Inequality Research at Aarhus University).

The positions are available from 1 February 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter). The position can be applied for as either a 3-year or a 4-year PhD scheme.

The research project
Inequality is rising around the globe with potentially detrimental effects on citizens’ physical and mental health, material wellbeing, and ability to participate in democratic politics. What is more, these inequalities in health, economics, and politics tend to interact and re-inforce each other.
Acknowledging the importance of rising inequality and the need to move beyond a singular focus on either health, economics, or politics, Aarhus University seeks PhD projects that aim to explore how these different types of inequalities interact. The successful PhD project should investigate the interaction of at least two of these inequalities. Apart from this thematic focus, there is no disciplinary, theoretical, or methodological conditions attached to the positions.

Job description
Aarhus University is committed to career development. As a PhD student, you will get intensive and dedicated supervision and access to an extensive course programme. Combined with access to career counselling you will get the opportunity to develop your career, direct your training and take the required steps to reach your career goals.

The PhD positions support innovative and high-quality research projects irrespectively of the academic background or institutional affiliation of the applicant. The successful candidates will be hosted at the department that best matches the PhD project and the applicant will be enrolled in the PhD school (i.e. Aarhus BSS Graduate School or Graduate School of Health) affiliated with that department.

Your qualifications
The successful applicant is supposed to conduct independent research based on the project description submitted with the application, but will be affiliated with PIREAU, which brings together researchers from across Aarhus University. The PhD position is therefore a unique opportunity to draw on the expertise of a wide network of scholars.

Applications must include a project description (max 12,000 characters) that describes the applicant’s independent focus within the frame outlined above; including research question, theoretical and methodological background, and proposed research design.

Further information
For further information on the position, interested candidates are welcome to contact Professor Carsten Jensen by E-mail: carstenj@ps.au.dk

If you need help uploading your application or have any questions about the recruitment process, please contact HR supporter Anne Arnfeldt Källberg, Tel.: +45 9352 1361, E-mail: aak@au.dk

Place of work
The place of work can be either Campus Aarhus, Campus Herning or Aarhus University Hospital.

Formal requirements
You are strongly encouraged to look into the formal requirements and rules and regulations of the graduate school your project is the best match to. You can read more about the graduate schools, the rules and regulations as well as their formal requirements for an application via these links:


The following criteria are decisive in the assessment of the candidates:
