OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network "NEWFRAC" (www.newfrac.eu) offers 13 PhD positions for early stage researchers. The duration of the appointment is 36 months, full-time employment contract. 

"NEWFRAC" (www.newfrac.eu) is a high-level training of a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative early-stage researchers (ESRs) through the development and engineering applications of a new modeling framework focused on the prediction and analysis of multi-field fracture phenomena in heterogeneous engineering systems at different scales. NEWFRAC in its mission of training students capable of solving the current problems of multi-field fracture phenomena in heterogeneous engineering systems, offers 13 PhD positions for early stage researchers (ESRs) distributed in a network of 5 European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain ) and two countries associated (Israel and Switzerland), with the participation of prestigious academic and industrial institutions that will allow researchers to grow and develop their technical skills in a multisectoral environment.

Besides working on their project at their home institutions, the researchers will participate in network-wide training events like summer schools. Moreover, they will conduct secondments at other network partners combinig academic and indstrial expereinces.

A list of the currently available 13 PhD positions /ESR Projects is presented below. To apply to a specific position/project, click on the title and follow the instructions.

Benefits

A full-time fixed-term contract is offered. Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions ITN provide competitive financial support to the ESR including: a competitive monthly living and mobility allowance and salary, coverage of the expenses related to the participation of the ESR in research and training activities (contribution to research-related costs, meetings, conference attendance, training actions, etc.). The recruited researchers will have a regular contract with the same rights and obligations as any other staff member of the institution.

Eligibility criteria

Applicants must at the time of recruitment: 1) Be in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. The four years start to count from the date when a researcher obtained the degree (e.g. Master’s degree) which would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate. 2) Candidates could be of any nationality but have not resided in the host country for more than 12 months in the last 3 years 3) Have NOT been awarded a doctoral degree.

Selection process

Applicants are evaluated by a selection committee on the basis of past academic performance (grades) and background, scientific relevance and aptitude to research, and any other additional pertinent data submitted in the application (such as scientific publications, if any). The candidates that pass the initial assessment of the applications will be invited for an interview with the selection committee, either in person at the campus, or via standard internet videoconference. Equal opportunities are ensured to all candidates throughout the evaluation process.
