Eligibility Criteria

Given that the positions are funded by the European Commission on a H2020-MSCA-ITN, eligibility restrictions apply:

  • Experience: Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited.
  • Mobility Rule: at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
  • Each ESR will be supported by the project for a maximum of 36 months.
  • All ESRs will take part in a secondment to another project partner for up to 30% of their appointment period (see details below).
  • Mobility Allowances and Family Allowances (dependant on family circumstances) are payable to ESRs.


At least two secondments of 2 months each to the collaborating partners will be organised during the project.

As job descriptions cannot be exhaustive, the post-holder may be required to undertake other duties which are broadly in line with the above duties responsibilities.

We offer:

  • A 3-year EU-funded inter-disciplinary position which is available in one of the partners institute.
  • Salary: This position is funded by a Marie Curie Initial Training Network initiative. Salary includes a living allowance, adjusted for location and a € 600 mobility allowance. An additional € 500 family allowance may be payable depending on circumstances. 

The successful candidates will benefit from a wide-ranging training programme featuring local, network-wide, and external activities with many opportunities for travel to the other European partners in the network. In addition to top-level specific scientific training in the disciplines, techniques and topics investigated at each node, such programme will include (but is not limited to) attendance to international schools, exchanges and secondments to other nodes, specific training on transferable skills, and in particular courses on scientific communication (e.g. scientific writing for publications, and presentation skills) and specific training on intellectual property rights (IPR) protection.
