Get your PhD at the Department of Information Technology.
All our PhD students are paid employees. This means that to become a PhD student, you should first apply for an open PhD position and then apply for admission to PhD studies.
PhD positions are advertised when funding is available, both at it.uu.se and uu.se. A PhD position is limited to five years of full time. The education covers 240 credits, which corresponds to four years of full time studies and research. In addition to that, it usually includes also one year of teaching.
