UEF Postdocs Society

UEF postdocs ry. was established to support and promote networking among post-doctoral scientists working at the University of Eastern Finland, both within their own disciplines and across faculty boundaries. The society organizes both social events and scientific seminars focusing on career planning, funding and in finding collaboration partners. All post-docs at the UEF are very welcome to join!

The purpose of the Association is to act as a link between the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) doctoral students, between the doctoral students and UEF, and between the doctoral students and all those who are interested in doing doctoral studies at UEF; and to lobby for the interests of UEF doctoral students, to represent UEF doctoral students, and to promote their societal efforts and extracurricular activities.

ESN Joensuu and ESN KISA (Kuopio) are part of ISYY (The Student Union of UEF) dedicated to the interests of the international students. The most important task of the ESN clubs is to introduce Finnish culture and lifestyle to international students and give Finnish students an opportunity to gain international experiences in Joensuu by arranging diverse events and activities. In addition, ESN Joensuu is active in promoting intercultural understanding on the campus. All members of ISYY are automatically members of the ESN clubs as well. However, UEF research staff, visiting teaching staff and their partners/families are welcome to join ESN Joensuu and/or ESN KISA as 'outsider members' for a membership fee of 10€ (Joensuu) / 15 € (Kuopio) /academic year.

If you would like to join, please visit one of our campus offices and ask the staff for more details. Information about ESN activities and our campus offices can be found on our website
