HIIT Research Fellow positions in Finland (up to 5 year contracts)

The Helsinki Institute for Information Technology has funding for Research Fellows and the research topics can include Bayes, probabilistic programming, ML, AI, etc.

HIIT Research Fellow positions support the career development of excellent advanced researchers who already have some postdoctoral research experience. While HIIT Research Fellows have a designated supervisor at University of Helsinki or Aalto, they are expected to develop their own research agenda and to gain the skills necessary to lead their own research group in the future. HIIT Research Fellows should strengthen Helsinki’s ICT research community either through collaboration or by linking ICT research with another scientific discipline. In either case, excellence and potential for impact are the primary criteria for HIIT Research Fellow funding.

The contract period is up to five years in length.

I (Aki) am one of the potential supervisors, so you could benefit from my help (other professor are great, too), but as the text says you would be an independent researcher. This is an awesome opportunity to advance your career in a lovely and lively environment between Aalto University and University of Helsinki. I can provide further information about the research environment and working in Finland.

The deadline is August 13th 2023
