PROTON is an international training network (ITN) in the frame of Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA). 10 academic and 2
industrial partners joint to train 15 PhD students in the field of proton transport and proton coupled transport. The research projects
of the PhD students aim at clarifying the molecular reaction mechanisms of protons in the confines of interfacial water layers and proteinaceous cavities with emphasis on proton mobility.
PROTON offers full time positions for 36 months with many additional benefits. Students interested in joining PROTON are invited to apply. The earliest starting day is 1.10.2019. We look for students holding or very close to completing their Master degree in (Bio)Physics, (Bio)Chemistry or Optics with the following qualities: i) exceptional academic performance, including qualifications, prizes; ii) subject specific skills and expertise iii) communication, presentation skills and team working abilities.
You are eligible to apply if you are: (i) in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of your research career; (ii) have not resided or
carried out your main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of your potential host organization for more than 12 months in the 3
years immediately prior to their recruitment. iii) are competent in written and spoken English

Benefits

- Family allowance (when applicable)

- Mobility allowance
