To be admitted you have to apply for an open position for postgraduate studies. These are announced regularly on the web pages of the department, on the web pages of the Uppsala University under Open positions and internationally. Each position is normally associated with a specific research group.

Before you apply, it is a good idea to contact potential supervisors, other researchers and preferably also other PhD students at the department to discuss your plans before you submit your formal application.

The application should include a statement of research interest, a CV, copies of exams, degrees and grades, a copy of your Master thesis (or a draft thereof), published articles or other relevant material (if applicable). Letter(s) of recommendation may be included.
