B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management and the administration.
Rockefellerkomplekset, 30 Juliane Maries Vej: At this address you will find 5 teams of scientists within astronomy and geophysics.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute, 5 Universitesparken: At this address you will find the nanophysics group.
In spite of these different addresses there is a good contact, and there are many common events.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
The staff of the institute has great ambitions and creative curiosity.
We strongly encourage applicants to read about the centre objectives before applying, and to describe in the application how the proposed work fits with the centre research plan.
