The Open University’s Department of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences is seeking to host exceptional research fellows funded by the EU's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships scheme. The Fellowships would enable successful applicants to engage in high-quality research for a period of 12 to 24 months under the leadership of experienced mentors in our department.

Eligible researchers are:

  • In possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
  • At the time of the deadline for submission (12th September 2018), have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline.

More details of the scheme can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/

The Department of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences supports a vibrant community of researchers, including 25 postgraduate research students; working on biomedicine, diagnostics, materials chemistry and neuroscience research projects (http://www.open.ac.uk/science/life-health-chemical-sciences/). Our community of researchers is diverse, and we especially welcome applications in the following area this year:

  • Development of novel catalytic nanoparticle radiosensitisers. This is a cross-disciplinary project involving cancer cell biology, catalyst chemistry and radiation physics. Work will be carried out at various centres within the UK and the EU.

If you are interested, please send a full academic CV, a 1,000 word research project outline and a short cover letter outlining why you think a Marie Curie at The Open University would boost your career to jon.golding@open.ac.uk (academic supervisor) cc: helen.elves@open.ac.uk – by the 23rd of July 2018.

Candidates selected to be worked with for full proposals will be notified by July the 31st  and the supervisor from the department will assist the candidate in preparing the application to the European Commission for the 12th September 2018 deadline.
