An academic portfolio is an account similar to an academic report, in which the author documents his or her core professional competence and reviews his or her academic work (research, teaching, administrative duties and other tasks) as a whole.

Applicants must prepare a portfolio for each post they apply for, and in the portfolio indicate their merits in view of the post applied for. The maximum length of the portfolio is 4­–7 pages (plus appendices, as instructed). In the section on teaching and supervision, applicants should pay attention to the Faculty’s instructions regarding the assessment of teaching merits.

The University of Helsinki greatly appreciates high-quality teaching. The teachers at the University and the Faculty are highly qualified researchers and teachers in their fields. The teaching skills committee appointed by the Faculty Council makes a comprehensive assessment of the teaching skills of applicants for teaching and research posts.
