General information

 

The “ArtMoMa” project is funded by the MARIE SKŁODOWSKA CURIE Innovative Training Network of the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission. This 4-year project aims to reach new heights in the emerging field of artificial molecular machines and to train a new generation of visionary researchers capable of conducting high risk, high grain research. In this framework ArtMoMa will structure a training network for doctoral students in the field of Artificial Molecular Machines. The consortium of 20 partners composed of high profile universities, research institutions and companies located in 8 European countries will push the current scientific boundaries further and explore entirely new directions of fundamental research towards technologically relevant implementation by training 15 outstanding highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). This will build a continuous stream of leading European scientists who will create further knowledge and innovations in the future, ranging from processes to products to services and resulting in economic growth and leadership in this field.

Benefits

The successful candidates will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for early stage researchers. The generous financial package includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance, and a family allowance (if eligible). The guaranteed PhD funding within ArtMoMa is for 36 months.

A career development plan will be prepared for each fellow in accordance with his/her supervisor and will include training, planned secondments and outreach activities in partner institutions of the network.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible, each applicant must fulfill the following criteria:

  1. Nationality: Candidates may be of any nationality
  2. Qualification and research experience: The applicant must fulfill the requirements defined for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs): ESRs are researchers who at the date of recruitment have not yet been awarded the doctoral degree and are in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of his/her research career. Full-time research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which formally entitled him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited or seconded, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged.
  3. Mobility: At the date of recruitment, the applicant must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc.) in the host country for more than 12 months in the last 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

Selection process

Pre-selection will be based on CV, experience, skills and motivation letter. Short-listed candidates will be interviewed by an experienced selection committee.

Applicants should hold a MSc degree (or equivalent) with good grades and good English skills. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications, emphasis will also be laid on relevant work experience and previous publications (if any).
