The University of Eastern Finland invites applications for fourteen Early Stage Researcher (Doctoral Student) positions in the EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Cofund DP project Neuro-Innovation: Research and innovation for brain health throughout life.

Neuro-Innovation training is a novel effort at University of Eastern Finland to integrate the university’s world class neuroscience with top-level innovation management, social sciences, law, data sciences and applied physics. This integration will produce unique inter/multidisciplinary competence that contributes to brain health innovation in Europe and beyond by training future leaders in this area of research and practice. Neuro-Innovation training will address the translation of research results into clinical adaptation and commercial outcomes in three multidisciplinary research areas:

  1. The societal impact of prediction and early diagnosis research area
  2. The co-innovation for prevention and treatment research area
  3. The transfer of technologies, methods and models research area

The University of Eastern Finland’s high standard of interdisciplinary research provides solutions to global challenges and builds a sustainable future. Our research is based on open science that makes an impact. Our versatile research environments enable a high standard of scientific research at the UEF.
