The University of Helsinki (UH) annually allocates funding to doctoral programmes for salaried positions (employment contracts). These doctoral candidate positions are designated as full-time work. The aim is that doctoral candidates employed by the University will pursue a post-graduate doctoral degree, which should be completed within four years.
Start here and then proceed to the more detailed instructions available on the website of your chosen doctoral programme.
All 32 doctoral programmes of the university have one application period.
In 2020, the application period is 1–15 September.
