HSSH Visiting Professor Program is open for applications

Helsinki Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities (HSSH) runs a Visiting Professor Program in 2022–2025. The third round of the program is now open for applications - apply by 31.10.!

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 2024. 

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 City Centre 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 Pekka Mäkelä pekka.a.makela@helsinki.fi 

The yearly call for applications is open until October 31, 2023.
