نشرت شهرين منذ

The partners in the EU-Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Network DurAMat are recruiting 11 motivated PhD students, with research and training starting in April 2024.

DurAMat joins academia and industry, providing scientific and personal development to young researchers in the “Sustainable production, processing and modelling of durable additive manufactured materials for enhanced performance and long-term service in complex environments.”

The DurAMat consortium consists of 6 Universities, 2 Research Centres and 5 Industrial Companies from 6 European Countries. It will train 11 doctoral candidates in a holistic approach, encompassing cross-disciplinary scientific knowledge transfer, training activities, and cultivating interpersonal and transferable skills.

As a Doctoral Candidate (DC) in DurAMat you are part of this research and training network, including secondments where you will do part of your research in another institute (university, research centre or industrial partner), joining forces with other DCs, and be heavily involved in trainings organised by all partners at the different partner locations. You will interact intensely with the other DCs in both research and training activities and will travel through Europe to the different locations to meet and learn!

Researchers funded by MSCA Doctoral Networks need to fully satisfy the following criteria:

  • Can be of any nationality.
  • Cannot have a doctoral degree at the date of their recruitment. Be an early stage researcher as a doctoral candidate (DC). DCs are those who are, at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full- time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate.
  • Have a master degree (or obtaining a degree before end of February 2024) granting access to doctorate studies. The degrees required for the various positions are all on the scientific master level: material science, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, computational modelling / A.I. of materials, or related fields in science, are all relevant disciplines.
  • Not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
  • English language: Network DCs must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.
  • Candidates must provide all requested information, including a cover letter, a motivation for application (indicating which topics are preferred), a detailed CV, declaration of activities and residence status before November 30, 2023, and a signed reference letter from an academic referee, preferably the academic master thesis promotor. All documents need to be merged in one single pdf document before uploading. Application will only be considered eligible in case of submission of all documents before the deadline.
