Funding

Funded PhD positions

There are currently no open funded positions. The next call will most probably be in September 2017.

Financial support for research training events

The doctoral programme can provide financial support for research training events (guest lectures, intensive courses, summer schools, workshops, etc) that are within the research areas of the programme and benefit its students.

The application time is continuous. A free-form application should be submitted to the coordinator at least two months before the start of the event. The application should include a description of the event as well as an approximation of the total costs of the event.

Travel support for doctoral students

The doctoral programme can provide travel support for its doctoral students to participate in conferences, intensive courses, summer/winter schools and research visits in Finland and abroad. Funds can be applied to cover travel, accommodation and visa costs as well as participation fees and per diem allowances. However, students are encouraged to primarily apply for funding from the project funding them. To apply for travel funding, fill out the application form preferably two months prior to the trip (the board decides on funding approximately once a month).
