Expectation from recruited fellows:
The postdoctoral fellowship in the arts aims to develop new forms of cooperation and dialogue between art and scholarship. The positions are primarily intended for persons holding a doctoral degree in the arts. However, also persons engaged in artistic work but having completed a doctoral degree in a different academic field are eligible to apply. Applicants must have completed their doctoral degree by the end of the application period. In addition to the doctoral degree, the requirements for the position include experience of artistic work or artistic research. Practitioners of all fields of art may apply for the position.
The postdoctoral researchers in the arts are appointed on the basis of a highly selective international competition. There is an annual call for applications for the position of the postdoctoral researcher in the arts at the Helsinki Collegium.
These fellowships are funded by the Kone Foundation.
The Erik Allardt Fellowship promotes strong academic and cultural exchange between Finland and Sweden within a context of high-quality research in the social and human sciences.

Candidates representing any discipline in the humanities and social sciences and any career stage from post-doctoral researchers to full professors are eligible to apply. The fellowship period is either the entire academic year or one semester.
