Graduate School Profile

The graduate school in population genetics is funded by the Department of Education in Finland. The school builds a doctoral program and trains graduate students in the broad area of population genetics. Population genetics is in a very dynamic stage of development, where concurrent advances in theory, increasingly efficient sequencing and genotyping methods, and recent computational methods allow advanced studies of model and non-model organism population genetics.


Graduate School Studies

The extensive doctoral training provided by the school will prepare students to take advantage of these advances. The students are expected to take formal courses and carry out research work and complete a doctoral thesis in about four years.

The students entering the school should join a research project led by one of the supervisors that are members of the school. The topics covered by different projects include evolutionary genetics, bioinformatics, genetic epidemiology, gene mapping, plant and animal breeding, conservation genetics, molecular anthropology and archaeology, and risks associated with GMO. The working place depends on the research group and the supervisor. The salary is set by the Department of Education which finances the graduate school, but the local university (research group) can pay a somewhat higher salary that includes some teaching duties.
