Eight new Postdoctoral Researcher and seven Academy Research Fellow posts to Aalto (Academy of Finland - Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering)

The Academy of Finland’s Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering today decided on funding for 37 new Postdoctoral Researchers and 22 new Academy Research Fellows.

The funding for the Postdoctoral Researchers amounts to some 9.5 million euros and the funding for the Academy Research Fellows to some 9.7 million euros. In addition to salary funding, the Academy Research Fellows will receive funding to cover costs of setting up a research team and other research costs. The funding period starts 1 September 2018.

The funded researchers will explore, for instance, new approaches, methods and materials to advance sustainable development and health technology. Research topics include optically driven smart microrobotics, X-ray musculoskeletal imaging and biomaterials for emerging solar technologies.

Aalto University has received the following posts:
