Accelerators Validating Antimatter physics (AVA) is the project within the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network scheme. The project is offering 15 Fellowships to bright, talented, highly motivated early stage researchers (ECR) that will be employed by the different beneficiary partners across Europe.


  • Possibilities for enrolling into a PhD programme
  • wide ranging training programme that will have advantage of both local and network-wide activities
  • Excellent salaries will be offered

Starting date for project AVA: Most positions will start in spring/summer 2017
