The Migration Institute of Finland offers a great vantage point to migration flow research in Finland and the world. In addition, the institute embodies unique competence in issues related to expatriate Finns. Besides research, the institute offers different jobs involving the archives, library and general office tasks.

For the most part, vacancies are subject to an open application process. However, we also accept open job applications. When applying for a researcher’s position, we would like applicants to follow the guidelines of the Academy of Finland with regard to the list of publications and CV.
