Tenure-track positions in The Faculty of Chemistry and Materials Sciences


Aalto University is a new university created from the merger of the Helsinki School of Economics, the University of Art and Design Helsinki and Helsinki University of Technology. The new university's ambitious goal is to rank among the top universities in the world in its areas of specialization. The combination of three universities opens up new possibilities for strong multidisciplinary education and research.

Tenure track is open to talented individuals who have excellent, demonstrable, potential for a scientific career. On the basis of their experience and competence, applicants will be placed on any of four levels of the tenure track system: Assistant Professor (1), Assistant Professor (2), Associate Professor or Professor.
