POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS (3-5 POSITIONS)
The positions are part-time (50% of the full-time equivalent employment) and fixed-term from 01/04/2019 to 31/03/2020 (or as agreed).
Fields of research and tasks
Artistic Research (AR) is one of the three significant research areas – alongside arts education and arts history – at Uniarts Helsinki. Artist-researchers in the fields of music, dance, theatre and fine arts form a community combining multiple disciplines and research traditions. It is characterised by close cooperation between the community members.
We are looking for artist-researchers who are motivated to participate actively in the development of CfAR’s research activities. The Postdoctoral Researchers have two obligations: (a) to prepare personal or collective project funding applications in artistic research, and (b) to work towards at least one peer-reviewed article for publication. The Uniarts Helsinki research services will offer support regarding funding applications.
As a Postdoctoral Researcher, in addition to personal research, your tasks may also include research activity development work on behalf of the University of the Arts Helsinki, i.e. project planning, applying for funding as well as other communal university activities. These individually agreed upon tasks may account for approximately 25% of your total working time.
We expect you to have the following:
Working time and salary
The total working time of researchers is 812 hours per annum. Salary is determined in accordance with the Salary System for Finnish Universities and the task-specific salary component will be level 5. In addition, the personal salary component will be paid. Monthly salary at the beginning of the employment will be €1500-1700 (for the part-time position) depending the selected candidate’s qualifications and professional experience.
