Consisting of 16 doctoral programmes, the University of Turku Graduate School (UTUGS) coordinates the doctoral training at the University of Turku. All the doctoral candidates pursuing their degree in the University belong to one of the doctoral programmes, which cover all the disciplines of the University.
The doctoral candidate positions can be applied through the doctoral programmes, and the positions can be applied both by current doctoral candidates as well as new applicants. The fixed-term doctoral candidate positions are intended for full-time doctoral dissertation research and doctoral studies with the aim of completing the doctoral degree in four years.
The University of Turku Graduate School finances altogether nearly 200 doctoral candidates every year. The selected doctoral candidates work as part of a multidisciplinary research university that offers high quality education. In recent years, the University of Turku has invested especially in supporting doctoral dissertation supervision and digitalising the entire span of doctoral education.
The call for applications will open 3 September at the UTUGS website.
