PhD Student Program

Being primarily a research institute, Nordita does not have the right to issue academic degrees.

This means there is no regular PhD student program at Nordita, as there is at the universities.

Nordita researchers may still apply for a grant for PhD positions. In these cases, the PhD student is formally enrolled in one of the local universities (usually Stockholm University or the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm), but has the Nordita researcher as thesis supervisor.
