Multiple locations: see locations.
The goal of i-CONN is to train a new cohort of 15 researchers specialized in the developing field of Connectivity Science who will be capable of developing interdisciplinary approaches to connectivity across a range of disciplines and real-life applications in the next five to 10 years. Regular workshops and secondments to other EU partners will develop transferable skills and facilitate the exchange of ideas between Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). A very attractive salary and benefits package is offered to successful applicants.
The successful candidates must satisfy the eligibility criteria (Additional info) and have:
- An excellent academic record in a quantitative discipline, including, but not restricted to: Astrophysics, Ecology, Environmental Science, Geography, Neuroscience, Social Science or related areas.
- A keen interest in pursuing research in the development of Connectivity Science.
