Job Requirements:

  • Applicants must hold a MSc or equivalent in the field of chemistry, (bio)medical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences or an equivalent.
  • Applicants must have an ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English to a level that is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.
  • Applicants must be eligible to enrol on a PhD programme at the host institution (or at a designated university in case the host institution is a non-academic organisation).
  • Applicants must have the necessary academic skills and background to make the success of a doctoral degree.
  • Applicants can be of any nationality.
  • H2020 MSCA Mobility Rule: researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the 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 are not taken into account.
  • H2020 MSCA eligibility criteria: Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) must, at the date of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the degree entitling him/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, even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged).

Salary Benefits:

  • ESRs will be employed by the host organisation for 36 months.
  • ESRs are offered a competitive salary plus allowances. Moreover, funding is available for technical and personal skills training and participation in international research events.
  • ESRs will benefit from the designed training programme offered by the hosting organisations and the IT-DED3 consortium.
  • All researchers will participate in international secondments to other organisations in the IT-DED3network and in outreach activities targeted at a wide audience.
