SKY Supervisors 2018

Applicant: Available below is a listing of the current supervisors in the Doctoral Programme in Gender, Society and Culture. To help you get a better grasp of the research interests of each supervisor, the name of each supervisor has been linked to their research profile in the University’s research database TUHAT. Researchers from outside the listing can also be accepted as supervisors if they fill the criteria placed on supervision in the doctoral programme’s selection criteria (see above). Please note that the list is updated manually and we cannot always guarantee that it’s fully up-to-date. When you contact potential supervisors to agree on supervision arrangements, please make sure that the person you have contacted fills the criteria placed on supervision in the programme’s selection criteria. Submitting an application without a preliminary agreement from at least one supervisor, who is in a permanent or long-term employment to the faculty awarding the applicants target degree, is not possible.

Supervisor: Is your name missing from the list? To have it added, please contact the programme’s planning officer Hannele Pitkänen (hannele.pitkanen@helsinki.fi). Supervisors added to the list must either be employed by the University of Helsinki or be someone who, for example, is actively carrying out research on a personal research funding in the University of Helsinki and is willing to take on new doctoral students.
