(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researcher and Postdoctoral Researcher, Context-awareness for generative AI

The aim of the research is to model the user’s context from data (behavior, conversations, physiology)  for personalising generative AI applications such as an LLMs chatbot. We previously modeled user’s context to improve recommender systems (Jacucci et al. 2021) by computer screen monitoring. The new research will use in addition a variety of sensors to capture the physical world interactions in addition to the digital context and allow generative AI applications to access information of the current or past context of users.

(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researcher, Mathematical Inverse Problems

The InversePDE project studies inverse problems for partial differential equations (PDEs) and geometric inverse problems. A typical inverse problem is the determination of the coefficient functions of a PDE from indirect data. The project aims to obtain unique solvability and stability results for inverse problems and to develop solution algorithms for these problems that are based on machine learning. The project will study inverse problems for linear and non-linear hyperbolic and elliptic PDEs by applying analysis, differential geometry, microlocal analysis, and probabilistic methods. The project will also combine methods of machine learning, in particular neural networks, and manifold learning techniques, with the mathematical theory of inverse problems to invent new algorithms that are rigorously guaranteed to work. We are looking for doctoral researchers interested in working on inverse problems and their applications. Women and other underrepresented groups in the field of mathematics are strongly encouraged to apply.

Deadline : Open until filled

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Resarchers, Experimental Particle Physics

The positions are opened in the HIP CMS experiment group which contributes to the analysis of the data from the CMS experiment and the development of analysis tools and software. Up to three positions are offered within the ERC Consolidator Grant 101043975 project “JEC4HL-LHC” and one within the research project “ForVVard” funded by the Research Council of Finland. The candidates selected for the  “JEC4HL-LHC” are fully funded by the project until August 2027, whereas the candidate selected for the “ForVVard” project is expected to apply for external research funding (complemented with project funding), and will receive support for writing competitive applications. The aim of the JEC4HL-LHC project (PI Prof. Mikko Voutilainen) is to bring the precision of jet energy corrections (JEC) from the current 1% level to 0.1% level in Run 3, in preparation for the high-luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), by innovating across all fronts of JEC workflow, introducing new types of calibration samples and calibration techniques. This will unlock unprecedented precision for measurements of key fundamental constants of nature, bringing new insight on the vacuum stability. The candidates selected for this project have the opportunity to pioneer new methods to tackle some of the dominant sources of JEC systematic uncertainty: the flavor-dependence of the JECs; modeling of initial and final state radiation, parton showering, and underlying event; pileup and time dependence of JECs. In addition, the candidates will perform CMS physics analyses that benefit from the improving JEC precision, on one of the benchmark standard candle channels each: jet production, Z+jet production and ttbar production. They are expected to gain full mastery of their chosen channel.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researchers in Quantitative Forest Science and Livelihood Vulnerability

Nepal has a highly rural agrarian population. In the middle hill region, the rural areas are experiencing depopulation and feminization as men migrate overseas for work, leaving women, children and elderly behind. As a result, agriculture is abandoned or reduced and land returns to forest. In this project we will investigate the dynamics of forest regeneration, explore the dependency of rural households on regenerating forest as well as the risks posed by these forests for rural households, and use modern modelling techniques to analyze the potential benefits of forest management versus agroforestry across the middle hills. The project is exploring the potential for tree and cash crop species to generate income across varying contexts. We seek to hire two exceptional researchers to conduct this research as University of Helsinki doctoral (PhD) students under the supervision of the PI and collaborating scientists at Kathmandu Forestry College, Freiburg University, National University of Singapore, and University of Bristol. The two doctoral researchers will have distinct but complementary expertise and experience.

Deadline : 10.9.2023

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researchers, Computational Materials Physics and Experimental Materials Physics

The project will computationally investigate the properties of multi-principal elemental or high-entropy alloys. Such novel alloys, containing many elements in significant concentrations, have shown promising mechanical, high-temperature, and radiation-resistant properties. However, finding the optimal alloy compositions with a given set of suitable elements is far from trivial. To achieve this, in this project you will use state-of-the-art machine learning (ML) methods in atomistic simulations (ML interatomic potentials for molecular dynamics) and electronic structure calculations (density functional theory). The ML models will be used to model, predict material properties, and perform computational searches for strong, ductile, and radiation-resistant alloy compositions in the Mo-Nb-Ta-V-W, Cr-Ta-V-W, and Hf-Nb-Ta-Ti-Zr alloy families. Your main tasks involve performing density functional theory calculations, machine-learning training, and molecular dynamics simulations of different alloy systems. For training and using the ML models, you will have access to some of the largest supercomputers in the world, located in Finland. The results will be published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. The work will be done in close collaboration with the experimental group in HAL and international collaborators, under the supervision of Dr. Jesper Byggmästar. Experience in programming (e.g. Python, C), the Linux/Unix environment, machine learning, or computational materials software for molecular dynamics (e.g. LAMMPS) or density functional theory are considered merits. For more details, contact Dr. Jesper Byggmästar, jesper.byggmastar(at)

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researcher in Host-Symbiont interactions

The project is funded by the Finnish Research Council. We are aiming to characterize the diversity and prevalence of host-symbiont-virus interactions already in place naturally in diverse pollinator species of the Baltic region, and to experimentally test symbiont-induced resistance against pathogens in these insects. Virus control strategies using microbial symbionts are feasible, and we aim to further develop and provide such innovative, sustainable, and environmentally friendly approaches to the conservation of pollinators in our agricultural landscapes. The tasks will include field work, molecular work, and both viral and bacterial community analyses, and writing of manuscripts; there are also opportunities for the doctoral researcher to develop their own research ideas. The project is in collaboration with Pr. Thomas Walker from Warwick University, UK; Pr. Dalial Freitak from Graz University, Au; and Pr. Johan Ekroos from University of Helsinki, Fin.

About The University of Helsinki, Finland – Official Website

The University of Helsinki  is a university located in Helsinki, Finland since 1829, but founded in the city of Turku (in Swedish Åbo) in 1640 as the Royal Academy of Åbo, at that time part of the Swedish Empire. It is the oldest and largest university in Finland with the widest range of disciplines available. In 2018, around 31,200 students were enrolled in the degree programs of the university spread across 11 faculties and 11 research institutes.

As of 1 August 2005, the university complies with the harmonized structure of the Europe-wide Bologna Process and offers bachelor, master, licenciate, and doctoral degrees. Admission to degree programmes is usually determined by entrance examinations, in the case of bachelor’s degrees, and by prior degree results, in the case of master and postgraduate degrees. Entrance is particularly selective (circa 15% of the yearly applicants are admitted). It has been ranked a top 100 university in the world according to the 2016 ARWU, QS and THE rankings.

The university is bilingual, with teaching by law provided both in Finnish and Swedish. Since Swedish, albeit an official language of Finland, is a minority language, Finnish is by far the dominating language at the university. Teaching in English is extensive throughout the university at master, licentiate, and doctoral levels, making it a de facto third language of instruction.

Remaining true to its traditionally strong Humboldtian ethos, the University of Helsinki places heavy emphasis on high-quality teaching and research of a top international standard. It is a member of various prominent international university networks, such as Europaeum, UNICA, the Utrecht Network, and is a founding member of the League of European Research Universities.
