As part of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine and in collaboration with the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) at the University of Helsinki and Aalto University, we welcome applications for the 2020 FIMM-EMBL International PhD Program. The call for applications for PhD positions in the fields of molecular medicine, bioinformatics, and artificial intelligence is open until February 2, 2020.
Detailed information regarding the institutes participating, position descriptions, research areas, qualifications, and application and selection process can be found at the FIMM open positions website.
We currently have at least three openings for doctoral students who show outstanding potential to become independent researchers and who will significantly benefit from the FIMM-EMBL/HIIT International PhD rotational training. Specifically, these positions are in the fields of molecular medicine (FIMM) and bioinformatics and computational biomedicine (FIMM-HIIT) and data science and artificial intelligence (HIIT).
Outstanding PhD students will be recruited to the rotation program where they will work with 2-3 different research groups during a 6-9 month period prior to selecting a research group in which to remain for their complete PhD studies. This program provides an exciting opportunity to explore different research topics and working environments as well as learn a variety of science and technologies, making connections within and beyond the institute.
PhD students in the Rotation Programme:
- Gain formal research experience before the doctoral programme period
- Diversify and deepen scientific knowledge
- Develop and refine scientific interests
- Receive early-career training with feedback in scientific communication
- Foster a best match with a research mentor(s)
