PhD Projects proposed in 2015

The PhD projects listed below are scheduled to start in September 2015.

In the below list, the first number indicates a simple rank of receipt and the two acronyms refer to the two institutions jointly supervising the project:
- APT = AgroParisTech (France)
- AU = Aarhus University (Denmark)
- SLU = Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden)
- WU = Wageningen University (The Netherlands)

Important note

Candidates are informed that, to apply for a given project, they must have a Master degree from a country different from the two countries of the institutions supervising the project.
