Applications to open calls highlights competitiveness of research positions in Helsinki ICT

Despite continuing problems in the wider labour market, the HIIT and FCAI postdoctoral researcher calls and HICT doctoral student call remain popular with applicants.

The recent open calls for HIIT and FCAI postdoctoral researchers and HICT doctoral students closed in early August. Despite fears that the number of applicants would be reduced due to the pandemic and other shocks to the labour market, HIIT, FCAI and HICT managed to attract similar numbers of applications compared with previous years. In our postdoc calls, we received 176 applications in total and in the doctoral student call we received 226 applications. In spite of the challenges from the last couple of years, Helsinki remains a popular place to study and work in ICT research.

If you missed the Summer calls, don’t worry. The Winter calls are scheduled to open in December 2021!
