Here’s a couple of things foreigners might not know about working in Denmark:

  • The position comes with the salary and all the regular benefits of a government position. The salary is decided by negotiation, but according to figures from Dansk Magisterforening postdoc salaries range from DKK 409,200 to 451,200 per year (ca. EUR 55,000 to 61,000) plus holiday pay.
  • The working language for ITU and GIFT is English, and there is no requirement to learn Danish during the postdoctoral position.  ITU has a highly international workforce. The ITU staff in GIFT come from six different countries (Norway, Spain, Austria, USA, Sweden and Finland).
