Applications invited for the 2024 FIMM-EMBL International PhD Programme

The call for applications for PhD positions in the fields of Molecular Medicine and Life Sciences is open until February 11, 2024.

As part of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, we welcome applications for the 2024 FIMM-EMBL International PhD Program. Detailed information regarding the position descriptions, research areas, qualifications, and application and selection process can be found at the University of Helsinki Open Positions page.

We currently have two to four openings for doctoral researchers who show outstanding potential to become independent researchers and who will significantly benefit from the FIMM-EMBL international and interdisciplinary PhD rotational training. Specifically, these positions are in the fields of artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, biomedicine, bioscience, computational neuroscience, drug research, genomics, molecular data science, and molecular medicine.

Outstanding PhD researchers will be recruited to the rotation program where they will work with 2-3 different research groups during a 6-9 month period before selecting a research group in which to remain for their complete PhD studies. This program provides an exciting opportunity to explore and combine different research areas and working environments as well as to learn a variety of science and technologies, making connections within and beyond the institute.  

Doctoral researchers in the Rotation Program:

  • Gain formal research experience before the doctoral program 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)
