Salaried positions and other funding opportunities

Employed, grant-funded or self-funded? At the University of Helsinki, a doctoral degree may be completed through either full- or part-time study. Doctoral students may receive funding from the University of Helsinki or one of its departments, institutes or faculties, a research project, foundation, association or some other external funder. They may also fund their own studies or pursue their degree in tandem with work. About a third of all doctoral students are in an employment relationship with the University and are thus members of University staff.

The Doctoral Programme in Psychology, Learning and Communication (PsyCo) invites applications for 2 doctoral candidate positions for a 1–4 year period starting primarily from 1 January 2019.  The duration of the employment contract depends on the phase of the appointee´s thesis. Doctoral candidate positions are primarily filled as four years’ contracts. Previous grant or working contract as doctoral candidate for maximum one year does not automatically prevent the candidate from receiving a 4 years’ position.

The research plan must fit the research profile of the PsyCo doctoral programme

Please, read carefully the general instructions for applying funded positions

Please note that when applying for a doctoral candidate salaried position, the whole application must be filled in English because a part of the applications will be sent for evaluation to international reviewers.

Please also inform your main supervisor as soon as possible about the necessary recommendation procedure through the following link by 4th October.   Please notice that it is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that the recommendations are sent by the deadline
