In this paper, we consider the existence and structure of Dirac-harmonic maps between closed Riemann surfaces. Utilizing the Riemann-Roch formula, we compute the dimension of harmonic spinors along a map, based on which we prove an existence theorem for Dirac-harmonic maps between closed Riemann surfaces. We also obtain a structure theorem for Dirac-harmonic maps between two surfaces if their genera and the degree of the map satisfy a certain relation.
