New staff

New staff members include academic, technical and administrative staff, PhD students, visiting staff from abroad, and visiting and exchange students.

Mentor

If you are a new member of staff, the head of the research group where you are going to work appoints a mentor to help you get established and registered, and to introduce you to procedures, buildings and other staff members at MBG and – if you are coming from abroad – registration with the Danish authorities.

See Practical information for staff and students coming to Denmark from abroad
