Kjeldgaard Lectures

Participation in the Kjeldgaard Lectures and the Kjeldgaard PhD Colloquia is required for all PhD students under the Molecular Biology and Genetics PhD programme who are located in Aarhus.

Participating students can acquire 5 ECTS credits for attending the Kjeldgaard Lecture Series throughout their study. However, participation in all lectures in both part A and part B of the PhD study is mandatory independent of ECTS.

Students should inform Line L. Dvinge whenever they are not able to attend due to sickness, teaching, leave, or visit abroad.

The discussion forum for PhD students following the lecture is set up in the system "Labbook", where our PhD students have a closed forum. To gain access to that forum, you have to log on to the system, and then notify Line L. Dvinge who will add you to the group.

More information on Labbook

All students must do this as soon as possible after being accepted onto the GSST PhD programme at MBG. Once you have joined the forum, you will automatically receive notification when a link to papers to be read for the lecture has been submitted to Labbook.


The Kjeldgaard Lectures normally consist of three parts:

  1. a seminar (40-45 min. including a broad and thorough introduction to the subject)
  2. a coffee break (about 30 min.)
  3. a "chalk-board session" with the speaker (Kjeldgaard PhD Colloquium) where participating students meet the speaker under less formal circumstances and discuss recent published papers.
