Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Positions

Our network is able to finance a small number of doctoral and postdoctoral positions in each of its primary centres during the period 1 January 1998 - 31 October 2002. Prospective candidates should pay particular attention to the following eligibility requirements.
  1. At most 35 years of age on appointment. (Compulsory military service or Child care can be taken into account)
  2. To be a national of a Member state of the European Community or Associate states (the latter being at present: Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Norway ).
  3. Not to be a national of the country to which the candidate applies.
  4. Not to have been employed more than 18 of the last 24 months prior to appointment in the country to which the candidate applies.
Applications should include a letter of candidacy, a curriculum vitae specifying particularly age and nationality, a copy of university diplomas received, a list of publications and invited talks together with a research project, the requested duration of the appointment (normally from 3-8 months) and their desired starting date (normally within 1-5 months from the application). Candidates should state which of the centres below would be their first choice (indicating possibly second and third choices). One copy of the application should be sent to the Scientific Co-ordinator (A. Joseph - see address below) and one copy to the Local Co-ordinator of the centre of their first choice. To be considered for an appointment starting February 1, 2002 (or up to three months later) the applications should arrive by January 21, 2002. Late or later applications will be considered for subsequent dates.

Each candidate should submit the names of two referees to whom the election committee may if necessary request an opinion.

Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the research effort of the network, to participate in the seminars of the centre to which they are attached and to attend the workshops of the network.
