Successful candidates must commit to researcher training within the Human Sciences Doctoral Programme and to completing their degree within four years.

The doctoral program also maintains close connections to Eudaimonia Institute, which fosters cross-disciplinary research within university’s “Understanding humans in change” research focus area.

In the current call, there are 7 full-time, four-year positions available in DP-HS for 2020-2023.
- An eligible candidate has a Master’s degree or an equivalent degree in a field relevant to the applied field;
- The degree must have been completed before the selection with at least good grades;
- Applicants are expected to be at the very early stage of research, in practice starting their doctoral training with this position. If you already have doctoral study rights in the University of Oulu or elsewhere, you need to explain why you should still be considered as starter or early-stage researcher;
- Any applicant who have received their doctoral study rights 6.8.2017, or before, are ineligible to apply.
The salary of selected doctoral students will be initially set on level 2, and later on levels 2 – 4 of the national salary scale for the teaching and research staff of Finnish universities. In addition, a supplementary remuneration is given for personal achievement and performance (max. 50 %). In practice, the salary is roughly 2200 – 2700 EUR per month for an early stage researcher, depending on the appointee’s qualifications and progress of the doctoral thesis.
Since this call is for starting doctoral researchers, the positions are filled for a four-year period, beginning on 1 January 2020. A six-month trial period is applied in the positions.
