HSSH calling for second round of Visiting Professor applications

Helsinki Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities (HSSH) introduced a Visiting Professor Program for 2022–2025. The second round is now open for applications - apply by 4.11.!

The mission of HSSH is to support multidisciplinary research, cross-faculty cooperation and methodological development at the City Center Campus. In order to support this, we invite proposals for HSSH Visiting Professor positions for 2023.

– We want this program to support visits that will benefit many different research groups. Concrete plans for cooperation, such as publications and research projects, are also good grounds for an application, says Professor Risto Kunelius who leads Helsinki Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities.

The program aims to support international research networks at the city center campus. All HSSH-affiliated research groups can propose candidates. We are seeking visiting professors that will catalyze research group cooperation inside the university of Helsinki by serving more than one research group, and enhance interdisciplinary debates and help.

The Visiting Professor Program includes a minimum of two weeks per year present at the City Centre Campus in Helsinki. The application is submitted by a PI at the University Helsinki center campus supported by another PI from a different research group. The PIs have an important role in hosting the visiting professors and acting as a strong point of contact between the Visiting Professor and the research group.

The visiting professors receive a compensation as well as funding for travel and accommodation fees. For more information on the Visiting Professor Program, contact Risto Kunelius risto.kunelius@helsinki.fi.

Deadline for application is 4.11.2022. Fill the application here.
