(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher, Fluvial Research

The Water and Environmental Engineering research group (WAT:, and its fluvial dynamics research team (lead by Research Fellow and Assistant Professor Eliisa Lotsari), has 1 (or 2, depending on the applications) vacancies for a highly talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher, who is specialist fluvial research, including experiments and/or field work and hydro-morphodynamic modelling in different type of northern river systems. The postdoctoral researcher candidate will study river ice – flow characteristics – sediment transport interactions at different spatial and temporal scales. Methodologically the work can include: (1) harmonized and integrated datasets with field measurements in different northern European river systems, (2) new experimental settings in laboratory flume experiments (with ice), and (3) modelling for upscaling to larger temporal and spatial scales. In doing so, the postdoctoral researcher(s) will overcome the limitations of current data, and tools for analysing and modelling the interactions of river ice, river flow characteristics and sediment transport processes in seasonally ice-covered rivers.

Deadline : 26.5.2024

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher, Transformative Water Management

Aalto University invites applications for two postdoctoral researcher positions within the Water and Environmental Engineering Research Group WAT ( The positions are related to our new Digital Waters (DIWA) Flagship ( and particularly its Research Theme 5 Transformative Water Management. The postdocs will work on themes related to water resources management and water governance, sustainability and digitalization, with a possibility to contribute also to stakeholder engagement and societal impact work. The positions are planned to include both research and interaction work, with the division between those two tasks agreed together with the selected persons. We therefore encourage applicants from a variety of relevant fields and methodological competence (qualitative and/or quantitative research) as well as relevant competences to apply. The positions will be filled until the end of year 2027.

Deadline : 26.5.2024

(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher, Hydrological Modelling

The postdoctoral researcher will work in the research themes of the Digital Waters (DIWA) Flagship ( funded by the Research Council of Finland. The researcher works with the DIWA theme leader, prof. Harri Koivusalo and his team. DIWA Flagship aims to form, facilitate and foster a new generation of the water sector. DIWA enables a transition towards the digital representation of real-world water systems (Digital Twin) to reproduce hydrological storages, their states, fluxes and processes, as well as ecosystem responses with novel options for improved scenario analysis, planning and governance. The candidate would become a part of a multidisciplinary team of experts. In addition to Aalto University, DIWA Flagship includes experts from several Finnish universities and institutes, e.g. University of Oulu, University of Turku, Finnish Environment Institute (Syke), Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, and Finnish Meteorological Institute. The work within DIWA will aim for enhancing water security through digital models, and Digital Twins created from the supersites of the consortium.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher, Large-scale Hydrological Changes

Aalto University invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher position within the Water and Environmental Engineering Research Group WAT ( The position is related to our new Digital Waters (DIWA) Flagship, implemented by a multidisciplinary consortium of several universities and research institutes in Finland ( DIWA’s goal is to secure water for people and ecosystems through integrated and sustainable practices and novel digital solutions. The postdoc will work on DIWA’s Research Theme 5 ‘Transformative Water Management’, and particularly themes related to past and future changes in large-scale hydrological conditions. The position will be filled until the end of year 2027.

Deadline : O25.5.2024

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher in high-resolution large-scale modelling of sea ice

The Ice Mechanics Group at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Aalto University studies how sea ice deforms and fractures in different scales and applications. The importance of research on this topic is enhanced by global warming, which is both increasing the fragmentation of ice and changing the mechanical properties of ice; processes related to mechanical sea ice deformation, such as ice break-ups and ridge building, will become more frequent and stronger. Novel numerical models for sea ice behavior and failure form a central part of the research on this topic and are developed and used by the Ice Mechanics Group.

Deadline : 22.5.2024

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher in Organic Chemistry of Molecular Materials

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our research group at the interphase between organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, and photoresponsive molecular materials. We are interested in the structure-function relationship of molecular chromophores. In this position, you will be developing a novel family of dyes based on the aggregation induced phenomenon, targeting to achieve photo response between their on and off emitting state.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral Researcher for Experiments in Swarming Dynamics of Living Swimmers

You will work in the field of soft, living, and fluid matter physics. We are looking for either a skilled experimentalist or theoretician. As an experimentalist, you would perform technically challenging swimming force experiments with tiny living organisms using a micropipette force sensor (Backholm et al., Nature Protocols 2019 As a theoretician, you would develop advanced theoretical models to describe our experimental finding. In both roles, you would also develop advanced image analysis schemes to analyse the experimental data. Your focus will be to investigate the effect of nearby swimmers on the swimming dynamics of brine shrimps. You will be expected to take charge of your own research project, conduct your work with high scientific quality, and actively communicate your problems, mistakes, and scientific findings to the rest of the team. We help each other to succeed in making exciting new scientific discoveries.

About Aalto University, Finland –Official Website

Aalto University  is a university located in Espoo, Finland. It was established in 2010 as a merger of three major Finnish universities: the Helsinki University of Technology (established 1849), the Helsinki School of Economics (established 1904), and the University of Art and Design Helsinki (established 1871). The close collaboration between the scientific, business and arts communities is intended to foster multi-disciplinary education and research. The Finnish government, in 2010, set out to create a university that fosters innovation, merging the three institutions into one.

The university is composed of six schools with close to 17,500 students and 4,000 staff members, making it Finland’s second largest university. The main campus of Aalto University is located in Otaniemi, Espoo. Aalto University Executive Education operates in the district of Töölö, Helsinki. In addition to the Greater Helsinki area, the university also operates its Bachelor’s Programme in International Business in Mikkeli and the Metsähovi Radio Observatory in Kirkkonummi.
