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 60 professors and over 200
doctoral students, and the participating units graduate altogether more
than 40 new doctors each year.

The activities of HICT are structured along five research area specific
- Algorithms and machine learning
- Life science informatics
- Networks, networked systems and services
- Software and service engineering and systems
- User centered and creative technologies

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 in the Finnish university system. Helsinki has been ranked as
the World's Most Livable City (Monocle, 2011), and is the capital city of
Finland, which is in the top 10 of the most highly educated nations in the
world (OECD, 2013), and has been selected as the world’s best country to
live in (Newsweek, 2010).

The participating units of HICT have currently 20 fully funded positions
available for exceptional doctoral students. The call closes on August 6,
2015 at 12 noon EEST (UTC+3). For more information and application
instructions, see http://www.hict.fi/admission

If you are interested in working with the Secure Systems group (
http://se-sy.org/), drop me a note as well.
