[DMANET] 20 fully funded PhD student positions in Helsinki

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 54
professors and over 200 doctoral students, and the participating units
graduate altogether more than 40 new doctors each year.

The activities of HICT are structured along six research area specific
- Algorithms and machine learning
- Creative technologies
- Life science informatics
- Networks, networked systems and services
- Software and service engineering and systems
- User centered information technology

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 in the Finnish university system. Helsinki has been ranked
as the World's Most Livable City (Monocle, 2011), and is the capital
city of Finland, which is in the top 10 of the most highly educated
nations in the world (OECD, 2013), and has been selected as the world's
best country to live in (Newsweek, 2010).

The participating units of HICT have currently 20 fully funded positions
available for exceptional doctoral students. The call closes on
September 30, 2014 at 16:00 EET (UTC+2). For more information and
application instructions, see "".
