A significant scientific and social event for PhD students, BSc and MSc students and other staff members at BIO and SNM.

All PhD students as well as their supervisors, BSc and MSc students and other staff members at BIO and SNM are encouraged to attend this significant social and academic event. The PhD day is an opportunity for PhD students to present their work to their peers at an exclusive event, develop presentation skills and practice promotion of scientific results. There will be ample opportunities for discussions and feedback. Further, it is a great chance for all participants to get an impression of the body of research being conducted in the department and to network with possible future collaborators. The PhD day program also includes high-profile keynote speakers and a feature about opportunities during your scientific career.

Outline of the Day

The day will consist of science and networking, ending with a dinner-party.
During the day there will be a variety of keynote speakers, PhD-student talks, poster sessions and breaks with time for networking. The scientific part of the day will culminate with the awards for the best talk and poster. The conference ends with a dinner in the Biocenter canteen and a party at mBAR.

Aims of the PhD Day

The PhD Day was founded in 2012


A central aim is the dissemination of own research to a broad audience with biological background. As part of this, each participant, whether giving a talk or presenting a poster, is encourage to join in constructive discussions and dialogue.


The event seeks to stimulate networking and novel interdisciplinary collaborations. It is therefore most conducive that this day includes a broad range of staff members, including BSc and MSc students, PhD students, junior researchers, VIPs and TAPs.


As a significant social and scientific event, the PhD Day aims to both bridge the gap between research groups and sections as well as strengthen the spirit of community among the PhD students.


By offering a feature on communication of science and by the above mentioned aims the PhD Day seeks to support the PhD students’ work and career.
