The TREASURE Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) comprises a consortium of leading Universities and Research Centres in Europe, with associated partners from top European industry stakeholders, as well as industry and academia from as far afield as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong and the US.

Collectively, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) includes systems such as the US Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian GLONASS, as well as the new, under development systems like China’s Beidou and, most importantly, Europe’s Galileo. Galileo is what we call the European GNSS (EGNSS) and is to be fully operational around 2020. GNSS have a multi-billion Euro world-wide industry - the EC has predicted an annual global market for GNSS of €300bn by 2020.

Although GNSS is routinely used in smartphones and in-car navigation with an accuracy of a few meters, it can deliver positioning accuracy of centimetres in real time if advanced techniques and error modelling are employed, especially if different systems (e.g. GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou) can be used in combination, in what is known as ‘multi-GNSS’. TREASURE will provide coordinated multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary cutting-edge research that will address this through an integrated programme of academic and industrial training which will include introduction to real-life applications of high-accuracy GNSS positioning and relevant topics related to the different projects to be undertaken by the individual ESRs. The training will also include a comprehensive set of summer schools, workshops and secondments.

Eligibility criteria

These 13 posts are available on fixed-term contracts for 36 months with a start date in either June or September 2017, depending on the host institution. All candidates must comply with the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions eligibility requirements (please see page 58-60 on http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/wp/2016_2017/main/h2020-wp1617-msca_en.pdf). In summary, candidates:

  • Must be within the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research career
  • Must not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree
  • Must  carry out trans-national mobility and not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) within the host country for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to recruitment (short stays such as holidays are not taken into account).

Successful candidates must be eligible to enroll on a PhD programme at the host institution (or at a designated university if the host institution is not an academic organisation).

Additional comments

Applicants to posts in the UK are assured that all funding will be made available for the duration of the project, regardless of any Brexit process or negotiations. UK universities continue to welcome applications from researchers from both within and outside the EU.

Offer Requirements

  • REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVEL
    Other: Bachelor Degree or equivalent

Skills/Qualifications

Candidates must have a background in a numerate discipline such as Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or a closely related subject, together with a keen interest in areas including Physics, Geophysics, Mathematics, Statistics, Modelling, Forecasting, Electronics, Signal Processing, Geodesy, Surveying, Mapping, Navigation, Imaging, Data Management, Data Assimilation, Geo-informatics, Remote Sensing, and Telecommunications. An ability to publish research papers and to present work at seminars, workshops and conferences is required. Experience in IT and computer programming, as well as a willingness to travel and undertake fieldwork, are essential for these posts. Excellent communication and teamwork skills are also fundamental to the success of this project, which will include additional training that will equip the fellows for research careers in the modern academic world and prepare them for interaction with industry.
