• Funded PhD positions at University of Oulu

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from students whose interests align with our new Centre of Excellence, focused on territorial and relational border practices. More information:

For those of you unfamiliar with the Finnish system, these PhD funding lines pay a living wage (gasp!) and support full-time devotion to PhD research. Guest lecturing and/or co-teaching can be arranged, but is not the basis of PhD funding. Health, maternity, holiday, and childcare benefits are all excellent.
The applications require a “letter of support” from a future supervisor, so if you or someone you know is interested, please do not hesitate to contact Professor Sami Moisio (
And for any questions about living in Oulu, working at the university, our 500km of bike paths and ski trails, and/or Everyman’s (sic) Right to berry and mushroom picking in the forest, please feel free to contact me, as well.
