(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researcher in Material science

The Doctoral researcher will be appointed for a fixed-term 3-year contract (start date: February 1, 2024 or as agreed) to work in a project entitled “From Dust to Value – Circular bio-based residues ‘D2V’. The position will be supervised by Associate Professor Tuula Jyske (Forest sciences), at the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry. The D2V project aims to develop a sustainable value chain from wood-based side streams to value-added bio-based products, such as dispersants, wood adhesives, binders and coatings, thermoplastic biocomposites, and fibre-based insulation materials through an efficient and integrated biorefinery approach. The targets of D2V are multiple and interlinked with parallel research sub-projects of the consortium partners. The main target of D2V is to facilitate the transition of Finnish biorefinery from a bioeconomy to a sustainable circular bioeconomy by upgrading industrial waste streams – mainly wood dust. In the tasks of the PhD position, the focus is in developing proof-of-concepts to fully utilize residual extracted and non-extracted dust particles for construction materials. The aim is to unleash the advantages of chemical and structural properties of dust via examining stepwise extraction kinetics to isolate extractives and water-soluble carbohydrates from lignocellulosic fibrous parts. The suitability of differently extracted fibrous fractions will be determined as raw materials for insulation boards and sheets. The goal is to study the performance of wood dust and fibre residues after each extraction in different insulation material applications (acoustic and thermal insulation) while mixed with different (biobased) binders, and fibres from other biomass sources. Also, the possibilities to enhance material performance properties with bioinspired engineering approaches will be assessed, such as knowledge on bioacoustics.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title:

The PhD researcher will participate in a project studying the adaptive benefits of urban evolution in a common butterfly, Pieris napi (Green-veined White, Lanttuperhonen). We will test whether previously identified evolution of this species in Helsinki provides an adaptive benefit by raising offspring of both urban and rural butterflies in outdoor cages in both locations. To conduct these experiments, we will work with local schools (grades 5 and 6) in Helsinki and the surrounding rural areas, involving students directly in planning and conducting the experiments. This will allow the project to also grant new insights for science education and for the role of young people in science. The PhD Researcher will also be involved in other projects related to the urban evolution of P. napi. They will have room to incorporate their own research interests into the project and develop their individual focus.

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.
