FIMM-HIIT Doctoral Student Call 2018

Modern molecular medicine requires state-of-the-art methodologies in data science, including algorithms and machine learning methods, and the analysis, visualization and modelling of large data sets.

As part of an annual international joint call of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, HIIT and Institute of Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) have five openings for doctoral students who show outstanding potential to become independent researchers and who will significantly benefit from the FIMM-EMBL/HIIT International PhD rotational training. Specifically, these positions are in the fields of molecular medicine (FIMM) and bioinformatics and computational biomedicine (FIMM-HIIT) and data science (HIIT).

FIMM and HIIT work together with the University of Helsinki Doctoral School in Health Sciences and doctoral programs (DSHealth) and Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT) to provide excellent training and courses aimed at a doctoral degree at the University of Helsinki or Aalto University.
