I am trying to write a sentence to say

I want to finish something in a finite time

However, I feel uncomfortable with this sentence. I feel

I want to finish something within a finite times

is better... but I can decide.

Some help? Thank you!

Since you want to finish by a particular time, you would use the singular

I want to finish something within a finite time.
I want to finish my dissertation within a finite time

Often the phrase

set amount of time

may be used instead

I would like to finish my dissertation within a set amount of time.
You will have a set amount of time to finish the exam.

Both phrases mean there is an endpoint or deadline for completing the task.
