Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions ITN Fellowship
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions ITN: STREAM
The EU-funded Horizon 2020 programme has two main strategic objectives: to strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industry and to encourage its international competitiveness, while promoting research that supports EU policies.
STREAM has recruited 17 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Currently we offer 1 position for an Early Stage Researcher based at Fraunhofer IZM, Berlin, Germany. The multi-site network will provide excellent training opportunities to ESRs in the field of applied physics and microelectronics. The STREAM consortium comprises 16 partners: five industrial partners, eight universities and three research centres. The ESRs will be recruited and hosted by STREAM partners in Austria, CERN, France, Germany, Switzerland and UK.
STREAM is a career development network on scientific design, construction manufacturing and of advanced radiation instrumentation. It targets the development of innovative radiation-hard, smart CMOS sensor technologies for scientific and industrial applications. The platform technology developed within the project will be tested in the demanding conditions posed by the CERN LHC detectors’ environment as well as European industry leaders in field of CMOS imaging, electron microscopy and radiation sensors. This leveraging factor will allow to fine-tune the technology to meet the requirements of industrial application cases on demand such as electron microscopy and medical X-ray imaging, as well as pathway towards novel application fields such as satellite environments, industrial X-ray systems and near-infrared imaging. STREAM will train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative ESRs and widen their academic career and employment opportunities. The network structures the research and training in five scientific work-packages, which span the whole value-chain from research to application:
· CMOS technology assessment against end use specification
· Design and Layout of application specific CMOS-based smart sensors
· Validation and qualification of the newly developed sensors
· Technology Integration and Application
· Technology valorisation and business cases
For detailed information on the position offered, please see the STREAM Web Site http://stream.web.cern.ch/
ESRs must, at the time of recruitment
- (i) be in possession of a university degree, and (ii) have a maximum of four years of full-time research experience, including any period of research training, after obtaining the degree which formally allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country in which the degree/diploma was obtained or in the host country (irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged).
- ESRs cannot be PhD holders at the start of their employment contract.
- The European Commission's Mobility Rules state: At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account. In the case of CERN positions, applicants cannot have been at CERN for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
- Proficiency in English is required; training in other languages can be provided through the ITN's training budget.
Applications should include:
- a completed electronic application form;
- a Curriculum Vitae;
- a copy of the last (highest) qualification;
- a short letter of motivation;
- three letters of recommendation to give as broad as possible overview of your academic and/or professional achievements.
The application and ALL supporting documents should be submitted using the e-recruitment system by the application deadline (see the STREAM web page for specific deadline dates).
What We Offer
- Attractive remuneration under employment for 5 months with chances for accession.
- In accordance with the European Commission's allowances for ITNs, there is an additional training allowance to cover training activities, conference attendance, etc.
- Interviews will be held as soon as possible after the closing date and may include a video interview. In the event of an interview at the premises of the partner, STREAM will cover travel costs.
Closing date: 4 August 2019
