# PhD studies

## Are you interested in a PhD position at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences?

You can read Lund University's general information about PhD studies here:

PhD studies at the Science faculty

Also have a look at the handbook for postgraduate students, published by the Swedish Council for Higher Education:

Handbook for postgraduate students

A PhD position at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences is usually 5 years, including 20% departmental duties such as teaching.

Every PhD student follows an individual study plan which specifies what research he or she should do, and how. Additionally, each subject has a general study plan that everyone follows. In these one can e.g. see how much of the PhD studies that should be devoted to taking courses and how much to doing research.
