15 open positions for a PhD in superconductivity and cryogenics

Careers | September 1st, 2017

The EU Marie-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN) Program brings together universities, research centres and companies from different countries worldwide to train a new generation of researchers. The funding boosts scientific excellence and business innovation, and enhances researchers’ career prospects through developing their skills inentrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.

15 Marie-Curie positions for Early Stage Researchers will be funded by an ITN project led by CERN. The topics are related to the development of improved superconducting components and high efficency cryogenic cooling solutions for a next generation of ultra-large accelerator rings.

The 15 positions will be with different research partners in Europe and will be 36 months appointments, starting early 2018. The deadline for application is Oct. 2, 2017.

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.
