We got three new staff professors: Ari Kulmala started as Professor of Practice in the field of computer engineering and shares half of the time with Nokia. The teams of mathematics in inverse problems as well as logic and algebra got Pasi Raumonen and Joonas Ilmavirta as new tenure track professors, and Johanna Rämö and Heikki Orelma started as university lecturers in mathematics. Poika Isokoski switched to the new position of Staff Scientist under ITC faculty and he specializes especially in our human technology interaction infrastructures. Other new positions are nine postdocs, 20 researchers and doctoral students, and over 40 research and teaching assistants. As part of our responsibility we also want to offer the first workplace to many students and look forward they got ignited in science and want to change the world in their contribution! For the future we can disclose plans to open several new positions for example in the field of software to serve our significantly increased number of students in information technology.
