Open projects

The Rector of the University of Jyväskylä has granted a new 3-year postdoctoral position starting from spring 2019 for NSC. Deadline for the project application is in December 16th, 2018. The project application should be sent by email to Tero Heikkilä. The evaluation criteria are:

  • Clear connection to KeHo (Wellbeing Expertise Centre of Central Finland)
  • Interdisciplinary (min 2 of the NSC fields covered)
  • Similar to NSC postdoctoral program, i.e., each NSC group leader can give one vote by participating in the project. Projects will be graded directly by the number of NSC group leaders involved. This will be the primary grading system, but the evaluation committee retains the right for individual assessment in case of a close call between two projects.

The committee members (Tero Heikkilä and Jukka-Pekka Mecklin) will be evaluating the first two criteria. Last criterion will be evaluated by each NSC group leader. Applications will be evaluated within two weeks and the project will start at 1.8.2019 (at the latest). Project plan (max 3 pages) should have:

  • Title of the project
  • Head of the project
  • Other members and their affiliations
  • Abstract (half a page to one page) describing the main aims
  • Plan for the use of post-doc resources: priority list of areas where postdocs are recruited (in case the first area cannot be filled, a recruitment to the second can be considered, and so on). 
  • Name of the person in charge of website construction

First four parts of the project plan will be public and will be published in the website of NSC.
