The contact persons for recruitment matters are Niina Oksanen, Personnel Manager, and lawyer Kaarina Lehtonen-Nurmio, who can tell you all about employment opportunities with SYKE.

Why work for SYKE?

The content of the work is our greatest asset. Our work benefits society and offers long-term goals. As an international research organisation, we provide our employees with an advanced research infrastructure and opportunities for training and professional growth. Although the pay and working hours are subject to regulations, we can offer flexitime arrangements.

What type of competence does SYKE need?

We need environmental experts from various fields, from engineering to biological and environmental sciences, natural sciences, and social sciences. A higher university education or a doctorate is considered an asset. Besides competence in a specific subject, other essential elements include skills in processes, information systems, communication, and procurement. We also appreciate problem-solving skills and the ability to work in an international environment.

What types of jobs are available?

We recruit several people every year. In many cases, the job is offered for a fixed term. Positions are offered in projects for which we receive funding from third parties. Occasionally we also offer permanent positions, but not as often as fixed-term positions.

How does SYKE organise its international recruitment?

We have some international recruitment needs. The associated jobs are advertised on our website and on the websites of PEER, AtlerNet, and NordNet. For application for these jobs, we recommend that you send an electronic or paper application to the Registry. In case you need help with preparing your CV, a sample CV is available on the website of the Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity.

How can I apply for a trainee’s position at SYKE?

You can apply for an international traineeship organised by the Erasmus and CIMO programmes.
