The Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT) is a joint initiative by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki, the two leading universities within this area in Finland. The network involves at present over 60 professors and over 200 doctoral students, and the participating units graduate altogether more than 40 new doctors each year.

The quality of research and education in both HICT universities is world-class, but the education is still practically free as there are no tuition fees for doctoral students in the Finnish university system. Helsinki has been ranked among the world’s top-10 most livable cities (Economist, 2016) and Finland is the happiest (World Happiness Report, 2018) and safest (World Economic Forum, 2017) country in the world.

The activities of HICT are structured along five research area specific tracks:

Algorithms and machine learning Life science informatics Networks, networked systems and services Software and service engineering and systems User centered and creative technologies

The participating units of HICT have currently funding available for exceptionally qualified doctoral students. The purpose of the call is student-supervisor matching, and evaluation of the candidates so that the supervising professors of HICT can then offer funding to the most successful applicants. If you wish to be considered as a potential new doctoral student in HICT you can (1) apply generally for a PhD position in the research group of any HICT supervisor(s) of your choice. You can also (2) apply directly to one or a number of specific PhD research projects.

All HICT supervisors and projects are listed at
