It is the wish of the Novo Nordisk Foundation for nursing in Denmark to be research-based, and for the Danish nursing profession to develop to the highest quality possible, for the benefit of the entire nursing and patient treatment process. With this call, the Novo Nordisk Foundation invites applications for Postdoc Fellowships in Nursing Research.


The applicant must be a nurse and have acquired a PhD degree (or similar qualification) or be registered for the PhD defense at the application deadline. The fellowships are aimed at 3-year postdoc projects, for ambitious nurses with research projects of high quality, that are anchored at a university, hospital or other non-profit research institution in Denmark.


The Novo Nordisk Foundation awards up to three grants each of DKK 1,8 mio., for the support of postdoc fellowships in nursing research.


The application should be completed in English and submitted via the foundation’s application system, which can be accessed via the link on the left. It is important that the applicant carefully reads the “Information and Guidelines for Applicants” before initiating the application process, as this document contains the complete call as well as detailed instructions for the application process.
