Job Talks

Helsinki GSE organizes several job talks this Spring term. To the extent possible, these will be organized using the regular seminar schedule, but it is likely that some will have to be scheduled outside the regular schedule.

All job talks will be announced on this web page, and included in the regular weekly seminar email.
