Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research


The Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research is comprised of eight universities: Sibelius Academy, the University of Helsinki, the Universities of Eastern Finland, Jyväskylä, Oulu, Tampere and Turku, and Åbo Akademi.

The central operating principle of the network is upholding the preceding Doctoral Programme in Music Research (2012–2015), that is, supporting national multidisciplinary research on music and the surrounding cultural reality.

NOTE: This network does not award doctoral degrees. It exists to further collaboration in doctoral studies and supervision between music research units in Finnish universities. If you are interested in doctoral studies in Finland, kindly contact the professor(s) working in university department(s) that appear most suitable for your topic and approach.Also, there are no funded doctoral student positions available in the network itself: all doctoral students within the network are post-graduate students of the partner universities.

null Autumn School (February 17–19, 2021) will take place online

The next autumn school of the Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research will take place on February 17–19, 2021 as planned. Kindly note that due to the severity of the pandemic situation, this year’s autumn school will be organised remotely via Zoom. More information on registration, Moodle materials, and other practical issues will follow after the holiday season. Presentation slots for the event have already been booked, but all network members are welcome to attend the seminar and take part in the discussions. For more information on the event, please contact the network coordinator at (tel. 0504779213).

Despite the unusual circumstances, we will try our best to enhance networking and socialising during the event by, e.g., organising informal morning coffee meetings and offering the possibility to book individual supervision meetings via Zoom. In addition, we will arrange “defense rehearsals” for three network members in Zoom near the event, i.e., in February or March. More information on these plans will follow in the beginning of next January.

Wishing you all calm and relaxing holidays as well as a happy new year 2021!
