REFERENCE NUMBERCarBon ESR 2
MARIE CURIE GRANT AGREEMENT NUMBER721432
CarBon is an Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) on controlling cartilage to bone transitions for improved treatment of bone defects and osteoarthritis. 14 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be appointed by the CarBon consortium for 36 months each.
The consortium consists of partners from both academia and industry with excellent scientific qualifications in multiple disciplines. In total, there are 14 open ESR positions within CarBon. Each ESR will be appointed at one of the consortium partners. During the appointment, secondments will be performed at the premises of other partners to ensure multidisciplinary training and close collaboration. The ESRs will start their projects between January and September 2017.
The ESR (ESR2) will focus on the functional characterization of the proteins and extracellular vesicles (EVs) that compose the secretome of human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells activated by different stimuli (hypoxic and inflammatory stimuli) in order to identify key factors/EVs involved in the modulation of the endochondral ossification processes. In particular, the deep characterization of EVs will comprehend a proteomic and microRNA profiling. ESR2 will be expected to be involved in the validation of the effects of the selected secretomes on angiogenesis, mineralization and endogenous progenitor cell migration both in vitro and in vivo.
An ideal ESR PhD candidate will hold a Master’s degree and have excellent marks from his/her previous studies and courses along with experience in one or more of the relevant fields. Excellent written and oral communication skills are a must. A preferential title will be a previous experience in the stem cell biology field.
There are strict eligibility requirements for the ESR PhD positions in MSCA-ITN . Please ensure that you qualify before applying, as ineligible candidates cannot be considered.
• Applicants should not have resided or performed their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 year period immediately prior to the start date of the PhD research.
• Applicants for the ESR PhD positions should be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctorate. This 4 year period is measured from the date of obtaining the degree which would formally entitle to embark on a doctorate.
MSCA-ITN offers an attractive salary and working conditions. An unique feature of MSCA-ITN is that during the PhD research, ESR PhD students will be given the opportunity to perform secondments at the facilities of other consortium members. ESR PhD students will benefit from a dedicated training program in the various fields of expertise of the consortium partners. Salary is complemented with a mobility allowance.
