15 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions are open as part of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie European Training Network - BIOREMIA ("BIOfilm-REsistant Materials for hard tissue Implant Applications").
The main objective of BIOREMIA Network is to provide excellent inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral research training to ESRs in an emerging area of research targeting a spectrum of biofilm-resistant biomaterials and coatings aiming to reduce the infection rates of medical implants for bone-related applications. The network comprises 11 beneficiaries and 6 partner organisations from both the academic and industrial sectors from 12 countries (Germany, Austria, Italy, Sweden, Greece, UK, Spain, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Netherlands and US)
The ESRs will be enrolled in a unique interdisciplinary PhD programme of leading academic and industrial organisations. In addition to their individual scientific projects, all fellows will benefit from a dedicated training programme comprising an integrated curriculum of local and intensive network courses, schools and workshops and from participation in various international conferences.
The duration of the appointment is 36 months, full-time employment contract. Strict eligibility criteria relating to professional experience (at the time of recruitment) and mobility apply to every ESR position.
Application dates and start dates vary. Please check individual ESR projects for details as well as for specific / local acceptance requirements.
