Helsinki ICT network: Positions for Exceptional Doctoral Students (deadline January 31, 2018)


The Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT) is a joint initiative by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki, the two leading universities within this area in Finland. The network involves at present over 60 professors and over 200 doctoral students, and the participating units graduate altogether more than 40 new doctors each year.


The quality of research and education in both HICT universities is world-class, but the education is still practically free as there are no tuition fees for doctoral students in the Finnish university system. Helsinki has been ranked among the world's top-10 most livable cities (Economist, 2016) and Finland has the highest standard of life in the world (Social Progress Imperative, 2016).


The activities of HICT are structured along five research area specific tracks:

  • Algorithms and machine learning
  • Life science informatics
  • Networks, networked systems and services
  • Software and service engineering and systems
  • User centered and creative technologies


The supervising professors of HICT, whose research groups you can apply to join via this call, are listed at "http://www.hict.fi/supervisors". This call is for positions funded by the supervising professors directly, this is not a call for competitive positions funded by the departments or doctoral programmes.

The purpose of the call is student-supervisor matching, and evaluation of the candidates so that the HICT supervisors can then offer funding to the most successful applicants. There are two ways to participate in the present HICT call. If you wish to be considered as a potential new doctoral student in HICT you can (1) apply generally for a PhD position in the research group of any HICT supervisor(s) of your choice. All group descriptions can be found through the list at “http://www.hict.fi/supervisors”.You can also (2) apply directly to one or a number of specific PhD projects, listed at “https://www.hict.fi/Spring_call_2018_projects”.


For more information and application instructions, go to "https://www.hict.fi/spring_2018". The online application form closes January 31, 2018 at midnight Finnish time.
