The Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) programme is offering 14 PhD positions in the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie MSCA-ITN project. The candidates will be recruited as Early stage researchers (ESR).

Disciplines: Life Sciences, Technical Sciences, Computational Sciences

Eligibility criteria:
  • Early-stage researchers (ESR) must, at the date of recruitment by the PI, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained a master degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the Hyperboost research training is provided. For clarity; it is really about research experience, so another MSc degree, or a holiday, or work outside of research, do not count towards the 4 years.
  • Conditions of international mobility of researchers: researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. Compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays, and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account.
  • English language: candidates must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high.

Duration: limited to 48 months starting from December 1st 2020 for 3 years.
