ENLIGHT-TEN: Announcement for 1 Early Stage Researcher Position (PhD student position) in Vienna, Austria

European Network Linking Informatics and Genomics of Helper T cells

ENLIGHT-TEN is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN-ETN) funded in the framework of the HORIZON 2020 program. The mission of ENLIGHTEN is to provide cross-disciplinary training in T cell immunology and big data analysis in order to train a new generation of researchers to exploit the power of emerging technological platforms.

ENLIGHT-TEN has developed a cross-disciplinary, high-quality educational programme to provide all its PhD candidates with specialist high-level research training, a broad scientific skill set and experience in both academic and industrial working environments. In addition to excellent research skills, our training programme will also offer training in team-leading abilities, project management and entrepreneurship to supplement and complement the university-based PhD education.

ENLIGHT-TEN consists of ten beneficiaries and six partners from seven European countries, bringing a balanced portfolio of expertise bridging in-depth knowledge of T cell differentiation and pathophysiology of autoimmune and allergic diseases, through to bioinformatic analysis of large data sets. This strong network of academic and industrial partners ensures that ENLIGHT-TEN's early stage researchers will be extremely well placed to successfully compete for academic or industrial life science related positions, and to drive research and innovation within the European Research Area.
