Call for Letters of Intent
The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Helsinki – educating the next generation of top-level atmospheric scientists.
The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences (ATM-DP) is one of the seven doctoral programmes within the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences at the University of Helsinki. ATM-DP is an international and multi-disciplinary programme, educating currently ca. 140 doctoral candidates. The candidates come from all parts of the world (over one third from outside Finland) and their main subjects vary from theoretical physics to forest ecology and management, and to environmental change and policy.
The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences calls for
LETTERS OF INTENT FOR DOCTORAL STUDIES
in order to bring prospective doctoral candidates with strong academic record into contact with ATM-DP supervisors.
The most impressive submitters of a Letter of Intent will be contacted and interviewed, after which supervisors may decide to help them in preparing a research proposal for the next call for university-funded positions in September 2020 or for external funding for doctoral studies. N.B.: the possible mutual interest arising from the Letter of Intent does not guarantee the admission to pursue doctoral degree or work at the University of Helsinki.
The submitters of the Letters of Intent are expected to hold a second-cycle degree (e.g. Master’s) or to presumably obtain such by the end of August 2020. Students interested in pursuing graduate studies after completion of Bachelor’s thesis are encouraged to apply to our Master’s Degree Programme in Atmospheric Sciences (ATM-MP). ATM-MP has strong record of preparing students for continuing directly to the Doctoral Programme.

The main duties of a doctoral candidate are to work on his or her own doctoral thesis and to complete postgraduate studies (minimum of 40 ECTS). The duties also include teaching and other tasks.
