Helsinki ICT network: Doctoral student positions in computer science (deadline August 17, 2020)

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, and the education is practically free as there are no tuition fees for doctoral students in the Finnish university system. In terms of the living environment, Helsinki has been ranked as one of the world’s top-10 most livable cities (Economist, 2017), and has ranked third place also in the world’s startup city comparison (Valuer, 2019). Finland is among the best countries in the world with respect to many quality of life indicators, ranking at the top in education and subjective wellbeing. Furthermore, Finland is again the world’s happiest country in 2020 (World Happiness Report, 2020).

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 participating units of HICT have currently funding available for exceptionally qualified doctoral students. We offer the possibility to join world-class research groups, with over 30 interesting research projects to choose from. If you wish to be considered as a potential new doctoral student in HICT you can apply to one or a number of doctoral student positions.

We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds, and qualified female candidates are explicitly encouraged to apply. For more information, please see the list of positions and detailed information on the application process and apply at:
The online application form closes August 17, 2020 at midnight Finnish time.
