Marie Sklodowska-Curie, Research and innovation invites applications for 15 Early Stage Researcher/PhD positions for its HYCOAT project. The project aims to provide an interdisciplinary and multi- training platform. The project deals with the synthesis and applications of hybrid coatings grown by Molecular Layer Deposition (MLD).
- Applicant must hold a Master degree or equivalent degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate; should not already hold a PhD degree.
- Applicant must not have stayed or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than a year in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
- Applicant must demonstrate excellent proficiency IN English (both written and spoken English)
Starting date: Before 01.07.2018
Duration: 36-48 months (depends on country)
How to apply
- Applications with the following documents to be sent by email to the HYCOAT project coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Motivation letter containing research interests, skills, career plans, reasons for applying for this program (1 or 2 pages).
- Full CV including nationality/citizenship info, academic/education history, research experience, experimental skills, list of publications where applicable.
- Applicant must provide sufficient detail regarding where he/she have resided and/or engaged in work or study between 01.02.2015 and the date of submission.
- Diploma (copy) of Master degree or equivalent degree which formally entitle to embark on a doctorate, including annexes with marks/classifications.
- 2 recommendation letters or contact details of two referees (if referees prefer to send the letters directly to the HYCOAT consortium, please ask them to e-mail to email@example.com before the deadline).
- For applicants from non-English speaking countries, please attach copies of recent English language certificates where available.
- List of maximum 3 selected PhD topics in order of preference.
- Applications for the PhD positions ESR8 and ESR9 should be done to firstname.lastname@example.org AND to http://www.nanogune.eu/careers in parallel.
