The ILS salary position starting on 2019 have been filled
Brief description of the selection procedure
In ILS, the evaluation of the applications is done by an external board (EP). The external board consists of 7 experts from the different fields of ILS, both from University of Helsinki and also external experts (from other universities in Finland). The EP is chosen by the ILS Board taking into consideration the scientific expertise of the members, the different research fields in ILS (so that all fields are represented) and also, the EP panel members are not allowed to have their own students applying that year. The EP does its work independently of the ILS board and there is no communication between the EP and ILS board. All the EP panel members read all the 68 applications and independently scored them. Conflict of interest for independent applications were also taken into account.
The criteria to use for evaluations were as follows:
* Success in previous studies
* Motivation and potential of the applicant to develop into an independent researcher
* Scientific significance, potential and feasibility of proposed research project
* Quality of research environment and supervision
The 26 top applicants based on EP scores for the written material were then interviewed by the EP. Also the interviews were scored by each evaluator individually and independently. Candidates got a separate score for the interview, and were ranked according to the sum of both written material and interview.
The ILS board made the final decisions based on scores from both written applications and interviews given by the external panel. The board made its decisions blinded so that board members did not see the names of the applicants while making the final decisions. In addition, only one ILS position per research group can be offered each year.
