Home PostDoc Danish Cardiovascular Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Danish Cardiovascular Academy invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships within the DCAcademy Postdoctoral Programme. The Academy will award a total of eight Postdoctoral Fellowships. The Academy offers two types of Fellowships.

  • Four 2-year full Postdoctoral Fellowship of 1,150,000 DKK over a period of two years covering salary; please note that the Danish Cardiovascular Academy does not cover overhead.
  • Four 5-year 20 % clinical Fellowship supported by the Danish Heart Foundation amounting to 575,000 DKK over a period of five years covering salary; please note that the Danish Cardiovascular Academy does not cover overhead.
  • Applications can be within any fields of cardiovascular research.


The Danish Cardiovascular Academy wishes to strengthen the Danish cardiovascular research environment through excellent interdisciplinary education and training of young researchers. The goal is to improve understanding of disease prevention, mechanisms of disease, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease.


Due to the collaborative purpose of the grants, the postdoctoral project should bring researchers from different disciplines and/or sectors together. This can be accomplished by having mentors (up to three complementary research leaders) and/or collaborators from different research groups, preferably from other disciplines and sectors.


The candidate must be within 4 years of their PhD degree (excluding periods of sick and parental leave).

The DCAcademy strongly emphasizes mobility and will prioritize applications where the applicant carries out his/her postdoctoral studies in another research environment than the one where the applicant carried out her/his PhD studies and/or applications where the applicant plans to stay in a research institution abroad or work in another sector (i.e. industry, university, hospital) during her/his postdoctoral studies.
