Finnish universities have had a strong tradition in research. Attractingresearch funding, publishing the results of research in scholarly journalsand being able to undertake research in a setting of academic freedom areperhaps the primary goals of Finnish academics. According to responsesto the Changing Academic Profession (CAP) survey, the majority ofFinnish higher education academics indicated a preference for researchover teaching, but patterns in Finland differ from those in some countries.For example, contrary to patterns in many countries, junior academics inFinland are more likely to spend more time on research, because manyFinnish academic careers start whilst student workers are undertakinga PhD. This chapter examines the research/teaching nexus, including aconsideration of seniority and gender.
