Each ESR will be employed by one of the three beneficiaries, based in the Netherlands, in Croatia and in England respectively. The candidates will be supported by H2020-MSCA-ITN funding for a maximum of 36 months. When more than 36 months are required for completion of the PhD program, the hosting institute might arrange funding, which may differ from that of the H2020-MSCA-ITN. Salary includes a living allowance, adjusted for location, and a mobility allowance. An additional family allowance may be payable depending on circumstances.
The successful candidates will benefit from a wide-ranging training programme: they will receive training in MS (mass spectrometry) for proteomics and glycoproteomics; clinical data management and analysis; statistical data analysis; data analysis automation; strategies for transfer of technology into clinical application; working under GMP; scientific writing as well as non-academic reporting; teaching and mentoring.
Training by doing RESEARCH: Each of the ESRs will spend at least 50% of their research time at one (or more) industrial partner, while working towards their PhD at the LUMC. This will ensure a uniform academic training as well as a high level of intersectorial exposure.
The ESRs will participate in events and workshops as well as local courses and (inter)national conferences. There will be ample opportunity to meet other ESRs involved in the programme, and to travel to other European partners in the network.
GlySign welcomes applications from all suitably qualified candidates, irrespective of gender, disability, marital or parental status, racial, ethnic or social origin, colour, religion, belief or sexual orientation.
