IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for post-doctoral researchers willing to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF), call 2020. IMDEA Materials Institute has a long track record hosting MSCA fellows and has obtain outstanding success rates in recent calls of MSCA IF.
Interested candidates (if successful) will work under the supervision of Dr. Vinodkumar Etacheri, head of the Electrochemistry (EC) group at IMDEA Materials Institute. The candidate will work in defect and interface engineered electrode materials design through computational modelling. The EC group at IMDEA Materials is involved, among others research lines, in the development of materials for electrochemical energy storage devices. IMDEA Materials Institute has facilities for the synthesis and characterization (spectroscopic, microscopic, electrochemical, mechanical) of numerous nanomaterials. In addition, the Institute has facilities for fabrication and testing of various energy storage devices. Another strength of the Institute is the multiscale characterization techniques (including in-situ methods) and the integrated computational engineering, which can interact with any material development.
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST:
Interested candidates please send your resume and a brief outline of the proposed research project (maximum 2 pages) via email to Dr. Vinodkumar Etacheri (email@example.com) before June 15th 2020.
DESCRIPTION OF THE MSCA IF:
The purpose of the MSCA Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) is to support the mobility of researchers and help attract promising foreign researchers to work in Europe. The grant typically covers two years' salary, research costs and overheads for the host institution.
The mobility rules require that the researcher has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, in the case of IMDEA Materials Institute) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline (September 9th September 2020 for call 2020). Exceptions to this apply under the career restart and reintegration panels.
The scheme particularly supports the return and (re)integration of European researchers from outside Europe and those who have previously worked here, as well as researchers displaced by conflict outside the EU and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It also promotes the career restart of individual researchers who show great potential.
