SPOTLIGHT, a newly launched Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) offers fifteen (15) PhD positions in seven European countries. The project will work towards a 5G mobile networks architecture that aims to break performance limitations of the currently loosely inter-connected, resource-fragmented and isolated in operation mobile network ecosystem, by transforming the existing multi-layered set of attachment points to a flat coalition of massively distributed transceivers utilizing a common pool of energy, radio, computing and storage resources that are optimally handled by a cloud-empowered network core. More information on the project can be found here: http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/205539_en.html

Benefits

These ESR enrollments are under very attractive employment conditions and competitive salaries offered in Marie Curie Innovative Training Networks. The selected ESRs will join top-class research groups and have a unique opportunity to pursue a career in mobile communications. Working in this ambitious research project, could lead the ESRs to the successful completion of a doctoral degree, together with a very strong joint multidisciplinary research training program in the field of emerging mobile networks. The planned mobility among seven EU countries and ten institutions is a plus of these job positions.

Eligibility criteria

Candidates must also meet the following criteria: 1) be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers; 2) be of any nationality, but not having resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host institution of the position they are applying to for more than 1 year in the past 3 years; 3) have not yet been awarded a PhD degree.

Selection process

Applicants are expected to submit the attached application form, indicating their preference to one or more of the following positions, along with a motivation letter, full CV, degrees, recommenders’ contact details (up to 3), and any other relevant documents, at itn.spotlight@gmail.com, not later than March 31st, 2017.
